found poetry: life advice

I read the label of my juice bottle:

shake well

For a couple of dollars, I got a subtle suggestion and a warning. You’re not getting any younger, you don’t have time to wait, keep mixing things up and be wary of letting the status quo override everything else.

And, I got a pint of something to drink, too. I tumbled the container over and over in the palm of my hand and drank my homogenized beverage.
