She-fly will hunt now
she'll lay her eggs on the proboscis of the other mother
those winged pains in the ass
that look for dark, warm, moist spots in the evening
garlic-free blood
in one night of life
just a smidgen for their own larvae now
but she's got more than one child to give away
just one mother more
a giant fleshfly house for you, beautiful
carve out your burrow little guy
maybe behind an ear,
covered with brown crust and tasty infected mammal sores
build that swollen mound,
hardened and oozing pus and endoplasmas
safe, nestle in there, safe,
where no one can harm you

All you need, all around you
the stuff of the good life
every nutrient you need, and you eat,
you eat, you eat to grow strong
you are safe,
and it doesn't matter if you are not loved
you don't need love
snug in your chrysalis
tiny larvae in metamorphosis
poking through your airhole
your new mother hates you but it doesn't matter
soon you'll eat yourself free
unusually large, airborne, hard, black, and shiny
you don't need love
I want to be you
