snowball’s chance

people say —
there isn’t a
snowball’s chance
in hell
as if it is
a bad thing

but to me
the idea of a snowball
wanting so badly
to attempt
a trip to hell
is a greek tragedy
that opens up
in my mind

sentient flakes
united in the hope
of the perilous journey
into the depths of hades
to prank
the devil, himself
growing smaller
smaller
losing the individualities
but never
losing sight of the goal
only to fail
fall
to the cracked rocks
at the base
of a throne of skulls
with nothing
but a hint of steam
dissipating

sad violins
softly fade away

people say —
a snowball’s chance
in hell
but i hear
we all have to die
let’s fucking do it
big
