“INCUBATORIUM” – Jason Squamata

in your shadow gallery

where the forms escape their frames,

formulas flow, feed, and breed

and play their wicked games.

in your cellular library

where the numbers on the spines

indicate taste, shape, and fate

your index will be mine.

i’m born again

every now and then

where my invisible friends

await a game of let’s pretend.

you struck me dumb

but where would i run?

when the world is just a womb

in your incubatorium.

in your dew-slick spiderweb

where your acolytes recline

in a blissful trance, the dust-motes dance

and fall outside of time.

in your coral abattoir

your meat meets mine at last.

my soul is sliced by the hungry eyes

of a mermaid made of glass.

i’m born again

every now and then

where my invisible friends

await a game of let’s pretend.

you struck me dumb

but where would i run?

when the world is just a womb

in your incubatorium.

i’ve gone beyond the fields i know.

where did all the lifeforms go?

they’re vanishing like footprints in the snow.

around the bend, between the scenes,

there’s a city where you weave my dreams.

receive me in your ruins, sweet machine.

in your incubatorium

where geometry comes to life

you engineer delirium

with red thread and a jewelled knife.

in your blue aquarium

where the sequined equations swim,

your crystal tears, blood, sweat, and cum

will marinate my sins.

i’m born again

every now and then

where my invisible friends

await a game of let’s pretend.

you struck me dumb

but where would i run?

when the world is just a womb

in your incubatorium.

the world is a womb in your incubatorium

the world is a womb in your incubatorium

the world is a womb in your incubatorium
