thoughts below ground 2

the worms that share this level
are excited by the coming warmth
but worried about the myth of birds
that has spread among them

some philosopher worm
has speculated that there exists
a dimension above and distinct
from this exalted and lavish
aether of plenty and joy
in which creatures must traverse
vast and inconceivable distances
to eat, and that they plunge into
this spongy and delerious aether
to do so, upon worms

needless to say
philosophy has been banned
forever
