System Mutation

They performed the Heimlich

when my mouth went static

and I couldn’t hold a charge


projecting indecipherable code

from the deepest amplitudes

of my intestines. Meals of

numbers coil about themselves

like a knotted cobra

or a coaster too jarring

and jumble the body’s

meaning. Suddenly,


it seems, I’ve developed

a phobia of gene expression

and starve myself of updates.

Hello, fellow bundle of nerves and flesh! I'm a simple little being who's half-poet, half-scientist, and all gelatinous chaos. Sort of like an illogical marshmallow. If you'd like to learn more, please seek out the "First Impressions" page. Thank you for the visit, bundle friend.
