Borrowing

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘Talk to me.’ Nothing left to say. Running from

the stomp of reality. This was their warning all those

years back. Gambling blindly with chips that were never

ours to have. Borrowing against time. Borrowing till there

is nothing left. All-in a system that we helped manifest.
