It was a Monday. I didn’t fancy my soup for lunch so instead, I ate the universe.
I munched on planets and chomped on stars that glowed all the way to my belly.
I merrily guzzled the galaxies, licking my lips as they slipped down my throat.
Energy, time and space; I swallowed it all in one big gulp.
The earth, the sun, the moons, all on my spoon, down they went!
Intergalactic space dust tickled my tongue. And then I had yoghurt for pudding.
And now I know, that I can do anything, go anywhere,
because I already have the whole universe inside of me. Take a look, it’s right there.
