This is your life; and it is ending one minute at a time. – Chuck Palahniuk

It takes

eight minutes and half to the next train station

two thousand steps and a slip to your home

ten hours and an entire playlist to your real home

four minutes and a dose of charm to be the next in line

two tall glasses of water to quench thirst

three open tabs to get distracted

half a minute and a good joke to the 28th floor

one long explanation and a fist bump to steal the punchline

eight consecutive days of silence to give up

four dial attempts to get someone pick up

one 2-word text message to ruin the day

one 4-minute Rico Blanco’s song to climb down stairs

nine hours of sleep to forget

and a split second to remember
