Cracked lips

Dutch traditional medicine, Purol

Resembling the great supercontinent that sat on our Earth millions (billions?) of years ago, the surface of my lips has started to form deep cracks, and is breaking up into large pieces. These newly created islands are drifting apart slowly but steadily, no matter how hard I try to smudge them back together with lip-ointment. When all has been calm for a couple of hours, and I imagine that inhabitants of this special Earth are finding their ways back to their damaged homes after another big landslide, I accidentally smile and everything cracks up again. Its a human tragedy.
