Random Poem:

Endosymbiont Protoopalina

I have bromine for your breeches, I have lots
of yellow to wet the edges of your sun
the purulence of your slipways.
I have lots of opaline to moisten the orgy
of your horn, tinder for your strings
violin red with hints of tangerine.
I have pilgrims for your shorts, I have lots
of pink neighbours; a hearth of feathers
born from your holy genitalia.
