Bottomless slumber, tumbling,
Like a babe down the stair.
You sloughed off your wrinkly skin,
To iron out the wear.
The ugliest vestigial uterus,
Swallowed me up like a pill.
And I writhed inside as she opened wide,
And reached in to keep me still.
I slept for many a year, and then no more;
My eyes oozed off; my consciousness died.
And I was blind until I saw her;
She spat me out, and I mindlessly cried.
Pink and raw and ******l,
Her eyes bugged out of her head.
She swathed me in her sticky flesh,
And sent me off to bed.
