I’m never eating strawberries again

June 29, 2020

there’s a pit in my stomach
it’s grown into a strawberry


the spiders that live in it
climb into my empty lungs
turning the trees in my lungs upside down
every morning they put on their tiny flip flops and stomp all over
my brain


their teeth makes little holes in my fingertips
at night they scream
keeping me up


i’ve grown used to it
sometimes if i open my eyes hard enough
flies will crawl in
the flip flop wearing spiders chase after the flies
tearing through my body
ripping open my liver
releasing tens of hundreds of beetles


the beetles chew through my bones
freeing the worms that made my skeleton their home
they slither through my body
wreaking havoc wherever they go


i’ve grown used to it
but i’ll never eat a strawberry again
