Pick Your Poison

Six Legs Too Many

Nibbles at my temples
Leading down to my feet;
I am covered with the lessons
of trusting post-release.
The fleas are swarming up now
Their total numbers swell;
To release this insect energy
I will have to breed as well.

Scratch as the voice tells you,
and sit back as it grows;
Discover hidden sites
of poison and you'll know
You cant erase their bodies
(Joints dissolving inside-out)
Vacuum of space is welcoming;
Their army's losing now.
