Swallowing the Sun

Swallowing The Sun

Swallowing the Sun

She swallowed the sun whole
On a Wednesday afternoon.

Just crammed it right into her mouth,
Like a fiery jelly doughnut.

Sticky sunny ooze
Dribbling out the end,
as she shoved the last sunbeam in.

Aftertaste pungent and puckery
Like sweet gherkin pickles
Tartness lingering on the tongue.

And now she levitates like the sun
Made full and whole by its consumption.


Finally illuminated.
Finally enlightened.

Or possibly indigestion.

    Since this was written the day
    before my birthday, I claimed it as
    my favorite B-day gift!
    I could almost taste the raspberry

    So very awesome. I esp. like this lil morsel —> “Like a fiery jelly doughnut” :)

    Cool ’cause I had a vision a while back, where I was swallowing up what I called a “copper sun.” What’s up with all this munchin’ on the Sun? lol ;)
