Day Four: The End of the World

Stirred: Warm World is on Tuesday 30th July in four days. Here’s my piece of four minutes.


pop, enters, noble, redundant, conceived. 

This is the end of the world,

pop goes the bubble of oxygen that I carry around

like I carry chewing gum

if you accidentally swallow it will live in your veins

coating them with minty scent

It will enter your bloodstream making you elastic

a redundant gummed object

Wrigley’s wrappers look noble as a library’s stone steps

clambering up to where the end of the world lives

in books and cigarettes and flames.

You strike a match, you always wanted to see how well

water would burn.


The Stirred quad is formed of Rebecca Audra Smith, Anna Percy, Jasmine Chatfield and Lenni Sanders.
