suppose you visit
me down here
you could discard your 
mirrors in this 

unlit cascade
this fetish of dirt
the rub, the writhe
segments and soil

the dirt and I
we are mutually
incorporating -
in and out the same

simple magnificence

Written for Sarah’s dVerse prompt “Creepies and Crawlies”

    1. I guess I have more of an affinity with worms than I realized. πŸ™‚ I tried for cabbage moths (a lot around at the moment) but found I didn’t have a lot to say.

      Dirt is magnificent. It is the beginning and the end of the life cycle. Perhaps that’s why I think worms are so cool.

    1. Oh thank you! People have made lots of nice comments but I wasn’t really sure what they understood from the poem. Your comment feels like I know you know what I was driving at. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. No offence to others. It’s just one of those things of sending your little baby artling out into the world and letting people interpret it.
