Lox

The ox swallowed a bee and became a box. Stubborn, trapped, a lot of china got broken. What was inside fell out. Those beady eyeballs bounced across the linoleum. Tusks became toxic. The cook put lentils on to boil while a giant wrecking ball took the roof off. Everybody gathered around the open-air picnic table, ate oxtail, and discussed religion, waiting for the sky to fall. Without shelter, eventually it did.
