By Feral

Slime mould dressed
Fuligo septica
gelatinous, wet suffocation;
Io besmirched.

plasmodial egg yolk
Argus filth
thousand-eyed nuclei;
rotten hydrogen sulfide.

Spore fluted slumber
beheaded guardsman
primordial mythic ooze;
ocelli peacock placed.

Necrotic temenos
sightless; bulbous white
gadfly; wanderer set.

  • A former member wrote: i actually have a poem with 'slime mold dressing gown' in it, to express the false beauty of a judge of christ. The name says much of this piece and ties it all together. Interesting that you interweve the fuligo, the tabanid and the She, the Io, whose grandfather plays upon filth as if he is wrong, as if you know something of him that i don't. What is this? Fascinating. Each trail you leave i follow to the most unsuspecting places.

    placed me in my own dark and slimy dungeon - left with the repulsive nightmares of your imagery - amazing verbal blows to all of my senses - thank you! ~Withering~

    We think in the same ways :p Disgusting poem, but creatively disgusting...even...beautifully disgusting if that can make any sense... I see why this is the poem of the day.
