THE SINGING MIXOTRICHA PARADOXA
Concentio Corpusculum Dilutum
By Hans Spinnermen
From the belly of M. Darwiniensis
Squiggling songs in a cappella,
Come these singing micro-species
Made of hairs, they call flagella.33
Five pulsing spirals throbbing spastic
Singing chewing tunes for trees,
Trapped within 5 tubes of plastic
Where they quiver with unease.
What’s your riddle little squiggle?
Can you squig it in my ear?
Are you one or are you many?
Can you tell me gidouille dear?
Mixo–treak-a! What you speak-a?
Did you say I am the freak-a?
I’m that many merger creature,
Made of countless other features,
Each restless nest of fickle other beings!?!
