Hollow Earth Theory


I examined the sweat glistening on the skin of a
Luciferian red apple, and wondered if paradise
is the cool flesh of a fruit bleeding out its sorrow
on the dry tongues of refugees in Sudan.

Which way is salvation- North?
When you watch a coffin lower into a grave
slower than a cherry blossom petal falling
to the ground, you begin to wonder if the
authors of holy texts had it all wrong all along.

Maybe the top-bottom system of the afterlife
is upside down,
and heaven is not up there above the clouds,
but below the crust of the earth, in a grand utopia
just outside the molten churning core,
and we've been living in hell this whole time.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
