mineral spirits

in the back closet all the eggs hatched 
desert rodents mice rats chickens rams all white
baby ram with extra sharp fresh horns 
held me in a facelock from behind
squeezing all the babies to my ribs
trying to keep them contained 
so many animals in there lately

i've swarmed me
imagining cells go freak evil 
the sick you get for anxiety
and for wanting it

but all thats mandelbrotten  
congeals into murk
and rises to the surface 
to be scraped away

smooth and silky magic 
i'm ready to make you
