The Journey of an Intestinal Worm Part 1

Round and round

the head spins

and under the skin it crawls

into the veins it swims

multiplying

as it floats

down and around

the loop the loops

of my circulatory maze

stopping to stretch

enjoying the views

of the echoey lungs

it  finds

dancing to

the near-by

thump

tickling as it

swings it’s teeny tiny tail.

triggering an

eruption

it loses all control

Hack, hack, hack fills the air

sailing through the air

the microscopic beasts

land briefly

in a dark moist cavern

terrified they run

from the razor-sharp

incisors surrounding them

down the passage

mating as they wiggle

hiding here

and hiding there

in the crevices of the tunnel.

  1. I was, eew, what happened so I clicked in and my eew became a sort of horrified ahh. It takes quite a word artist to turn this subject matter into a stunning poem. I trust you are all better.
