– Christopher Wren
Koalas in eternity, bored a.f.
Eternal skeletons shop for new skin
Eternity’s cellars are full of soap animals
Nina Simone in eternity never sounded so troubled, so sweet
Eternity is a dish best served with duck
Eternal beds remain unmade—lumpy & disheveled
Eternal McDonalds, more rotless yellow fries!
Salvador Dali reclines in eternal glass slipper
Opening to eternity, our walls of flesh
Eternity, passing clean through us, once again
