Super Short Story #458: Last Words

He decided to write
as if what to be written
are important enough,
to be his last words for all,
so that he does
not waste his time
and that of readers.

Then it occurred to him,
that he should speak
as if he was speaking
his last words too,
and act in the same way.

But there was always
mundane day-to-day stuff
that needs some writing,
speaking and doing…
since death takes some time to come.
