Hair is home
host to vermin
both lowlife
and high fliers

little lady bugs
after aphids
and crickets
around the neck

head is open
for business
enter up
escalator nose

bay lips open
for winnow
shopping
the ears parking

garages for
diverse scads
take elevator eyes
to the penthouse

sweet
down now
to the fruit and nuts
the walnut shaped

butt rarely sees
up as down it sits
a-squish in fat
the thighs arise

down to deal knees
legs akimbo down
to ankle gears
pulleys the feet

monkey wrenches
between toes
grease growing
mushroom nails

this being husk
breath munching
crunching
masquerade

and inside the body
marching things
really grow
interesting .

  1. The little buggers are all over us.
    Absolutely hilarious Joe – and quite disgustingly brilliant.
    I will lie awake for nights wondering whether this human support system will sustain creatures wanting to degust such a wilting frame. Or will I awake from my troubled slumber only to find I have been sucked dry and all which remains is a dried prune like shell.
    I hope the little buggers aren’t too selective about their diet.
    Have a very Happy Christmas Joe my friend.B
