Sending a cake virtually
I thought of baking a cake
for my friend and his old lady
with hash and pumpkin.
We had been talking and laughing
about this for days
and exchanging messages
about the amount of hash I should put
to make it kicking
and oscillating between present and future.
After making that cake
I took a bite
and saw the ants joining me in the party
freaking out jerking off their dreams
all over the table.
And soon I had nothing left to send
to that other planet where my friend lives.
Except those memories
of oscillation between
past present future
future present past.
