BLEACHED BIRTH

I was born in a toothpaste tube

squeezed from all sides

suctioned out

an afterbirth of talent pooled

which wrapped around me

 as it cooled.

Watch me now as I squint and squirm

this wriggly squiggly restless worm.

Thanks Martin - a wild idea and I'm pleased it was picked up on. A moment of madness really.

Thanks Stu: Glad it appealed. A bit barmy.

Cheers David. I like your analysis, it's nice to be looked into ! Not sure if afterbirth of talent is a compliment or just a mess but then you know me.
