In the beginning, there was
A book. The book was destroyed by fire.
Out of the ashes of that book,
The Ocean emerged. The Ocean
Was filled with feces.
That ocean contaminated the thousand~tongued
Creature. That creature then invented
Soap, toothbrush, and toothpaste.
Two thousand years passed. Quiet and
Breathing winds made sculptures in the heart
Of soft mountains.
Geography was invented.
Doctorate awards were invented.
Subtly, the world forgot alchemy.
5 years later: inside a house in Canada,
I was broadcasting a live video on YouTube.
My internet plan expired in the middle
Of the broadcast.
The video was about alchemy.
