The Afterlife: theory 01

afterlife1sm

In the afterlife you’ll be forced to repeat the events your life. Everything will be sorted by category rather than occurring in chronological order. You’ll proceed alphabetically through a customized list, from “Aardvark appreciation” to “Zima consumption,” until every box has been checked. You’ll peel 6,000 bananas in a row. Change 7,000 diapers. Eat 6,000 hotdogs. Sleep for 9,125 days. Burp for 182 hours. etc. etc.

This is punishment for thinking life is too short.

A Jagged Remnant

jagged-sm-v2

A conflagration births a spark
Bursting hot from the source
Glorious in the moment
Burning without remorse

A jagged remnant

Particles end a fervid dance
Torn away from the whole
Separate from meaning
Suffering through the cold

Their fate imminent

Trapped within a frigid spin
The fire of creation
Ignites only to die
Spared pain and elation

Mourn the sentient
