Flatworm Fashion

“the hermaphrodite flatworm... scientists have discovered, can reproduce by injecting sperm into its own head.” The Guardian, July 1st 2015

Have you ever wondered how the fashion industry decides
that animal prints on synthetic fabrics ripped into artful rags
are this year’s “look?”

Fashion experts confer with other fashion experts.
They congregate, exchange germs of ideas
(or sperms of ideas: an orgy of self-fertilization
the fashion monster stabbing itself in the head
with its needle-like penis)
which spread throughout the industry, emerge
wrapped around skinny figures swaying on a catwalk.

In the runway spots the fashion monster writhes
brandishing platform heels and stiletto genitalia.
It’s not that other mates aren’t available:
this monster doesn’t care to look outward
preferring the suck of its own sperm
the solace of its own sweet prick.

Available! High-Voltage Lines, Knocking from Inside
