Taking Risks

by Mark O'Donnell

Beware of the dumb in freedom.

Life is a crapshoot, but it's also a dance.

Take a slow subway, or a cab facing gridlock?

Illness's symptoms, or drug's side effects?

Gambling: Buying a magazine without browsing it.

Discover your real friends -- make the party BYOB.

Faith: Lighting the candles before your date shows up.

Face your date unshaven? Or risk exposed shaving cuts?

Tonight's bender is tomorrow's breakage.

Don't do anything you wouldn't remember doing.

Heavy snowfall, 3 a.m. -- go on, coast through red lights.

The wedding vows; outside a siren.

Blindness to the future saves us from it.

Our bodies are the slot machines of the virus world's Vegas.
