Right now

Whatever you’re doing right now –
whatever you’re making or saying
or eating or yelling or discovering
or losing or breaking or kissing
or staring at or buying or standing on –
you are the only person on Earth
that is doing that exact thing right now.
Unless you’re synchronised swimming.
But even then, you’re the only one
swimming or drowning in that specific
patch of water. So splash about.
