Mutation

frog-self
pass over teeth
salt
slack tongue

imbibe
become
without automatic functions
everything
dilates the sensory

I conquer, I
just to breathe
pushing
at the seams

want to wriggle
out of skin
meet myself
on the other side
of
mental prison

lock-
down
the crawling is too much
heart stuck
to the floor
wet
with cold-sweat
pores
exhausting
noxious
food waste
slime

eye
finally open
kneeling prostrate
with
forgiveness
