demodex

1 November 2017

whenever you are alone and in the dark spiders fuck on your face
on the lesser horizons of eyesight the giants loom to half a millimeter
whenever you are alone and scared consider
the demodex who born with six legs wakes up having

genestatised overnight another pair consider
living his divot existence digging out
at sunset to wade oases of nose-oil and breed
consider mrs vermicula who makes her nests inside your pores

from webs of your dead skin and packs twenty odd ova
per follicle consider the lack of anus
and the faecal fireworks that celebrate the end of night
and existence whenever in the dark a breeze touches your cheek

know child that it’s just i god watching wormy spiders fuck
across your face and nudging my atoms together like eggs
