Neoplasmic Katsaridaphobian

An invasion
Of gross numbers
By horrible brown scouts

Into infrastructure
Behind bone
Behind flesh
They nest and rest

Big black alien eyes
Unseeing antennae
Reaching out to probe the space
Spreading filth with a hideous face

Multiplying in the body
Where the frame homes a hive
Nesting in wait
Pestilent surprise

To skitter around
Insects of infection
Sapping the home
Of breath to take

Rusts wing of flaps in wake
Seeking a source
A cold, damp corner
For hive to make

Chewing with mouthparts
Consuming the trash
Multiplying uncontrollably
Spreading their malignance

Sprinting spindly legs
Rushing from cover to cover
Reaching the amygdala
Crawling underneath skin

Ootheca eggs hatching
Hatchlings swarming out
Spreading through the veins
Contaminating healthy vanes

Expenses paid
For radiation
Can’t stem the swell
Of dirty insects

No cure
No symptoms
Until it’s too late
To abate

No poison to eradicate
Or traps to intoxicate
Just twisted pitch alien eyes
And the ravaged home they brutalize
