nothing brings home the feeling
of do it now or else
like the slow oncoming train of cancer
the teetering tower
cliff-base erosion
incoming tide
of call it what you will
but finish that book
make the trip
say the words
look into the eyes
procrastination no longer the best option
savor every drop

Perhaps one should take those as given under all circumstances, except no to the chocolate after midnight before surgery!

Well, yes, of course you're right, that's how I've been living.
