Day Three: The End of the World

Stirred is on Tuesday 30th July, and we have three days to go. Three minute piece.

Prompts:

seamlessly, mist, beasts, burden, collusion. 

I wake up it’s the end of the world

I boil an egg I do not break it

I boil it whole

it is a seamless being

inside this egg lives a beast called knowledge

it is an egg dweller.

This egg gets heavier and more solid the more I boil it.

Like an earthly, yolky burden.

It chortles in the misty bubbles and will

soon smell of salt as it collides with my stomach

It is a last act of love, I do not count

the ten desperate minutes of love making with you

indulgent tenderness.

Here is a link to Sara’s shared new blog where photos of the random things you see strewn on pavements are found and made into a weird kind of treasure. It seems appropriate for this end of the world thread to be seeing people’s lives scattered in lost arrangements over the city.
