From the back
by Juan Rios

Back it up.
Only, just a moment in solitude.
A moment suspended in time.
A moment.
Back it up.
Not ready for you.
Keep the volume down.
Shut the blinds.
No loudness.
No noise.
No moan.
Not even white noise.
Live it up and
get wasted.
Every minute, every day…
Someone else will live your live.
Back it up.
Nobody loses it.
Don’t do what they say.
Turn off the music
Embrace the silence
of the floating spirits.
Embrace it.
Back it up.
