seep aligns itself with alien attributes (Hinge Ether)

Blackmoldy mice         corona ripe
                gargantuan filth
spores sprout wings 
ride wind
the air pregnant with monsters
vicious Vitamultin viles 
catched in the palm of the lungs 
lunging out and about nothing but insurrection 
propaganda funnels
a core uncradled
perpetual fight or flight flushes
blood to arms/legs
debauching immunity 
crimson hazes flash 
pallor /
sickly yawps
cough out
the end

‘s beginning

Jeysus, where’s the craic?
Seventeen mosquitos 
autographed my veins today.

Momma had a baby and its head popped off.
Blessed for the breadcrumbs 
we still don’t 
look like 
aliens yet.
