murder hornets gotta eat & other fallacies

the world is flat
but round, a blue pizza
or green naan

if I fall

or you fall

from the edge,

as this planet has fallen
from full globe
to a communion wafer

would we meet
dragons? Or giants?
Or sleeping murder hornets,
all of them hungry?

how is this less ridiculous
than what’s real, this bright dot
suspended within nothing,
stable only through thin gravity

so lonely,
so easily broken

no wonder we imagined gods
to love it

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. Trent Lewin says:

    Just bloody perfect. You are brilliant. Can’t believe you just whipped this up, in a few minutes it seems! Mad talent!

  2. Indeed, existence itself is frightfully hard to comprehend.
    To hell with “why this? or why that?” the real question is “why anything at all?”
