Out from Under

i was born
as a slug under a rock
either it was lifted
or i was pulled out of it
but suddenly, the sun
was blinding
behind a magnifying glass
for inspection
by some kid
i was his
experiment
he flecked salt
at my writhing body
and left me there,
half shrunken

then, other kids came
and poked sticks at me
until their mothers
shrieked

i was born
as a slug under a rock
but i was raised out
by the ocean
looking up at the stars

if that’s not good enough
ill just keep on looking
up
