Super-Maggot (three verses)

While I was toying with verse for other reasons, a load of white people who feel that nobody is more oppressed than they decided to advertise their fear and loathing of reality in a public place. Some sort of ungodly reaction was catalysed, and when I came to, these three images were on my screen.

A SUPER-MAGGOT DWELLS UPON THIS EARTH / A HIVE OF SHARPENED FLESH THAT LIVES TO GROW / IT STABS, UNTHINKING, AT THE UNIVERSE / AND WHINES, IN FEAR, TO UNCORRECTED GOWITHIN ITS MAGGOT-MIND IT TELLS AND TELLS / A TALE OF GUILTLESS SELF AND PURITY / RENDERING FLAT THE WORLD BEYOND ITS SHELL / SO THAT THE STABBING MIGHT UNHINDERED BEBENEATH, ABOVE, BESIDE THE MAGGOT-BULK / THE WOUNDED UNIVERSE ENDURES, IGNORED / IT WAITS, WHILE MAGGOT SOOTHES ITSELF IN SULKS / IT COMES, WITH ENTROPY'S UNMAKING SWORD / TO BURST THE BUG AND CLAIM ITS DUE REWARD

I’m increasingly attached to the idea of the Insideist movement (being a gross overextension of the human self) as a gigantic, screaming monster or hive. It made its way into a 35,720-word self-exorcism I performed in July, the result of which may well be published later this autumn (after it’s been deployed onto an unsuspecting gaggle of 4channer Doctor Who fans, in the hopes of exorcising one or two of them).

Remember all of this is determined. Channel your fear into desire for understanding. Redirect your rage into passion and do something you’re happy with.
