sea monkeys

i bought a packet
of sea monkeys
just the other day
got a fishbowl
followed the instructions
at day three
i saw movement
day seven
a newly formed democracy
day fifteen
had technological advances
so complex
i felt shame and wonder
it is now day fifty six
they watch my every move
i find myself
doing their bidding
they are in my head
i would kill them
or myself
if they allowed it
they constantly chatter
speaking profane things
whispering dark desires
they chant
i fear
what will awaken
if you are reading this
kill them
and me
