What can YOU say in six sentences?
One way or another
an egg had fallen from a nest, a baby bird, gray, twitching, defenseless
flung to a burning unnatural surface. It would not survive.
Its first and only sensory experience hot, painful, and, pointless:
all the integrated, complicated forces of nature behind its creation
Inside its painful abandoned body, nerves and cells
sent messages, pain will be the only thing it ever feels.
In heat like this nothing survives, there is only suffering.
I saw this and I wrote this so that it would not only live the once, but that
the description of its pointless suffering could somehow add meaning to
a brief exstience filled with agaony.
