Suicide Aside {A Melody of World

suicide aside try watching birds regard them as they fly like salt to bread spice up this crusty world a giant spider web their lines of flight tie up and bind the world they fly birds jump up in the air and stay you try it flap your arms for all you're worth no way you're stuck they’re free to leave the world the colors lemon zest and lime and berry sugar coffee cream and all the rest sublime delicious flavors how our eyes drink in the world and listen to them sing the wind becomes a thing alive with music whistles squawks and chirps a melody of world so tell me why you thought you'd rather die check out pluck all the feathers close the lights alright don't tell me but please me stick around a while with me to watch the birds see how they swirl and turn the world
