You are a titmouse.
Finding yourself in a small room, dimly lit, you’re still unable to make out shapes.
Resuming interest in the dark, the shadows outline the contents of the room, which are just not that interesting.
Ibizan sea breezes take hold of your wings.
You have wings. (Whoa. Nice.)
Ever higher you float. And then, you don’t.
Nearing terminal velocity, you flail.
Death stares you down.
Life carries you… somewhere.
You follow. (Fun! Until…)
Your ponderous nature takes over the intercom at cruising altitude, and you ask yourself, “What’s a titmouse doing off the coast of Spain? I’m a North American bird of genus Baeolophus of the family Paridae. I don’t even know how to pronounce those words, but I know that’s my deal, and that me swooping around the Mediterranean ain’t making an ounce of sense.”
You get existential angst.
Unctuous olfactory onslaughts assault your feathery core.
You get hungry.
Nearby is a treat.
You hone in.
Icarus swerves up and out of the way of your gastro-intestinally-induced nose dive.
You are a thing of beauty at high speed. (Natural velocity.)
Villagers scatter at the news of a falling star.
Evacuated streets set the backdrop for your table for one.
Ravished by the dish, you rest for a minute.
You seek more.
Satiation punctuates your ever engorging desire to feast on what feeds your soul. There’s just no other way to describe it, especially since it doesn’t make any sense, since…
You are a titmouse. (…)
Everyone should try hummus.
