Life Lessons Before 50

Trail mix not so healthy when
a 4,000-calorie snack.
If a bed stand hosts The Secret
or The Healing Self or their cousins, 
do not get into that bed. 
Hightail it away from that new-age nest. 
Avoid disposable cups when you can’t avoid morning. 
You’re never too busy to watch baby animal videos on YouTube
or to gaze into your dog’s eyes and loudly proclaim your love.
Dance like you belong to The Cult of Dionysus
even when there’s no music playing.
