The Nauplii of Enceladus

beneath the ice sheets
weird nematodes luminesce
around the core vents

there is a peaceful
slowness in the benthic zone
deep with the tube worms

the hyperbenthos
of Enceladus digest
anything they can

The bugs in the forest where I live

these queer beasts look quite
like Malaysian Jungle Nymphs
though they speak English

Rainbow-Faced Bloodflies
hover, detecting my breath
as I sit cross-legged

among the Daypods
and sap covered Trees, there is
a melodic hum

a chorus of deep
and forceful buzzing, as the
Leaftigers seek mates

The Eternal Flesh

the man with the card
which read "Eternal Flesh, Inc"
said she'd be the same

my replacement wife
nuzzles my neck like she used
to, before she died

the clear, eternal
flesh of my replacement wife
will never wrinkle

her belly hums with
wires, where before it would growl
where I laid my head

this beautiful girl
is an image or echo
of the truth she was

They never understood

The bots never got
imitative counterpoint
or our love of gems
