Here’s a question:
what’s worth dying for?
No, wait, wait—never mind—
that’s way too philosophical.
What would you die for?
Not that that’s not abstract
for most of us (as in not real),
but if you can answer that one—
propose a possible reply—
even make a somewhat educated guess
(what’s important enough to you
that you would, on its behalf,
sacrifice your living?)—
if you can but conjecture a response,
here’s the follow-up:
how much of your living
is devoted to what you think you would deem
worth dying for?
You could also ask that question inverted:
where, in priority, would what you spend
most of your time doing rank?
What would it be like
to live ever more into what you would die for?
