gods of gods

Sitting in a deity's stomach
makes the term larger than life
more sensible

She has swallowed the seeds and soil
from her maker's stomach
to build cities, plains, creatures, terrain

Within each breather lies the potential then
for from the deity's stomach may they steal
the seeds to form hybrids and make new life

And so in the bellies of unpraised men and insects
breed new worlds with new indescribables
Skies with textures like bricks, like cream

Mountains which deflate at the sight of blossoms
Fires that tickle the animals' barbed skin

Therefore exist new rulers which stand
larger than known life forming within digestive tracts
thinking not of the lands they possess

So they may roam freely, chaotically
And obliviously find themselves gods
