Maceration Protoplasm of the Stars

prepared by a previous life
infinite spiral filaments
crystallized by spherical
variation and clustered in
blue milk
this marvelous phenomenon-
a sufficiency of exactness
from obscure corkscrew fission
power and influence on linen,
weak wine, and indigo opium
turns to the anomalous rescued
spore- an exclamation
of astonishment
as flagella protrude
into the never-ending and almost
unlimited powers of
our universal fermentation
assimilating in nature
