Ancient recipes, reading small prints
antediluvian secrets, keys to bliss
now streaming live, channeled from off world
re-shape your destiny with these 5 cures.
Cliche, hyperbole being incomplete clues
remaining curiously playful
labeling anything that moves.
Quietly digging through the night
contrasting fertile limitations
snipers hiding in plain sight.
Reality it seems,
is a cold hard red clay
packaged in reusable plastics
with improved biodegradability
dinosaur juice modeling
a vague culpability.
I found some on sale,
at the corner store
the baking instructions
on the back of this here box,
boil until ripe belly’s bloat,
simmer until share holders split
disgorging the carmine,
cool before serving
the sacred only congeals
after the *cochineal float.
*cochineal are a scale insect from which the natural dye carmine is derived. [they are a tropical *sessile parasite that lives on cactus.* Sessile: Latin for moves on it’s own]
