Toxicology


I would swim with 100 jellyfish
Dance on the sun
Eat a bouquet of waters hemlock
Hold hands with a blue ring octopus
Kiss an inland taipan
Hug the Indian red scorpion
Take 20 tablets of gray death
Chug an amber bottle of batrachotoxin
Grin at a furious lowland gorilla
Remove 4 vital organs myself
Rip out my every nail with rusted pliers
Shoot a flaming white arrow above my head
Let an army release rapid fire
Sleep underneath a 6.5 ton African bush elephant
Color my body in celadon green paint from the 1980s
All
To get one taste
If it was the last thing I’d die from
There would be nothing wrong
Except for me
