The grime is millimeters high,
Visible to the naked eye,
Certainly scent-able to the human nose.
It’s available in a riot of disgust like cesspool brown, cadaver gray, charred death black, and chunky puke green.
Good luck getting rid of it once it’s found you!
Seriously, I’m not laughing. Well, maybe a little bit, but it’s benevolent and companionable.
Unlike The Grime.
It’s okay, we all know how to inhale dirt;
We’ll teach you.
I promise it won’t always hurt this much.
It only hurts because you’re still so clean.
Soon you’ll be as filthy as the rest of us,
Wallowing in it
Once Twice Thrice
Before rolling over to Invite it
Into your mouth.
