-myself under quarantine
something sickly slithers
                           through folds & both lobes
corrupted electrical signals
                           thick knotted tunnels of meat
cardiac muscle & lit-up neon
                           hidden, coiled in darkness
( ( ( t h e E E L i s i n t h e H E L I X ) ) )

  1. I would have commented on this before, but as a young child I was traumatized by an eel kept inside a fish tank at a hotel restaurant. I return now, recovered from my temporary relapse.

    This reminds me of the visuals they jump to in "House" when they're explaining what's wrong with a patient. The imagery is just as realistic to me, with this invading eel the culprit. You're tapping into a place not seen by most eyes, but the image is still clear.
