I would rather...

I would rather drink

A goblet of my own spit,

Carefully braid

The coarse hairs of my armpit.

Have a mucus mask

Slathered onto my hair,

File my toenails

To resemble a square.

Than, for one moment,

Rest my flesh made vessel.

Have the imp of my mind,

Give me ideas to wrestle.

Nothing brings me

Such unbearable disgust.

As focusing in

On my mind’s cloud of dust.

    If this article was written I Medium, I would have highlighted the flesh vessel line. Great imagery and another great poem by you.
