For Life on Earth

Like melting chocolate

Earth melts into angel-smoothe

Mephistopheles’s drink

 

My heart is egg-shaped or an egg

Hardboiled and never afraid of breaking shell

Not like chocolate

Not like earth

 

“Pure” “spoiled” make no sense

Signal failed signal red

Pain and peace

Holy mother f____

 

A break-

Crawling ant-

Smarter than maggot.

Failed!

 

Beep Beep!

Again no signal left

Signal taken by

Narcissus or Dr. Faustus

 

Oh! Forgot

Ms. or mistress

What f__ ever

Mommy earth is melting

Put some ice on her.
