Salmonella wanted
to broker a truce─
between life and death.
We were very scared.
The questions were never answered.

A fault on the earth’s face.
Who will ask the─
hangman? The tree was
standing without roots.
The questions were never answered.

Who was the spider
and who was the fly?
A rose was unfazed;
it was a naked thorn.
The questions were never answered.
