my aunt kissed me on the cheek and out of that cheek a terrible black tree grew spreading its spiderweb roots over my face digging into my skin sprouting new branches and on that terrible tree which grew out of the cheek which my aunt kissed grew a single green apple that burned my lungs and throat as i ate it but i ate it and ate it and ate it all anyway until i got to the apple's core and in the core there was a worm shouting do not eat my world to me eating the worm whole out of the apple core which grew on the terrible tree which grew out of the cheek which my aunt kissed so the worm inside my belly turned white and dissolved and each part of him became a family member papa worm mama worm and two boy worms that went to school and played outside until they fell into the toilet i sat on to dispose of the family of worms that split form the single worm i swallowed from the green apple core that grew on the terrible tree out of cheek and so forth and so on and finally the family of worms drifted apart one got lost in my heart and the other travelled to my brain where he started to make me write my plans to give a kiss back to my aunt
