the doctor always told me

don’t blink.

the angels will come for you.

all time will reverse.

the lives of loved ones will end.

a whole world passes

when you blink.

a whole world dies

when you blink.

and you will never be able to see

the magic given

taken

and birthed

when you blink.

if you close your eyes

even for a moment

things will happen

once

and only once.

keep your eyes open

for angels

still as statues

turning to devils

blood thirsty murderers

when you look away.

that’s why

the doctor always told me

don’t blink.
