Sponge Squeeze in a Twisted Terrain by Scott Thomas Outlar


Suntan schizophrenia

swallowing Ouroboros

with a mixed shot

of sweet sweat elixir

Solar tonic eclipse

blips across the radar

as it rummages through the lungs

pickpocketing the stomach lining

of a swollen organ paradise

Humming a bacterial singsong

along to the backwash of acid

dehydration mineral decomposition

Disintegration through digestion

whitewashing the interior

with liquid alkaline plasma theory

to send the parasites into a frenzy

scurrying to the edge of oblivion

kicked out of paradise

no more free ride

fallen hard from the garden

exiled from the guts

worms to the dust

maggots to the ash

mosquito blood

splashed upon the canvass

of healthy organism

cellular regeneration
