The Earth
Edith Parzefall

There's so much between me and my man.
A whole planet. A big lump of fire,
water, mud and rocks.

It sucks. Which is good.
Otherwise we'd float away—
Just like the air we're breathing.

We can crawl around it.
Even if it takes awhile,
Till we hold each other again.


Edith Parzefall studied literature and linguistics in Germany and the United States. She works in Information Technology, but her true passions are writing and traveling. Edith lives in N├╝rnberg, Germany, and spends part of the year in Australia.
