In Progess


It was stone

the first tongue

that spit lava

from the magma-filled

belly.

Before it let go

it rolled

it around

the taste buds

and up on hard and soft

palate

to get a feel for it

before

it said

‘to hell with you.’

(Thinking hell

was nth times hotter

than this

But who knows)

It was (un)fortunate-

the destination

was never met,

the failure

which far preceded

Columbus

came in the form

of islands

But for not getting there

here was consolation

-the sun

-the waves

-the steps

of some foreign

creature

upon its

back-front-side

-underbelly

-the room to think about its own teeth

growing in(somniac)
