Frastus recapitulates phylogeny, whilst and at the same time juggling his skull

Frastus is Dannun Dwann.
His veins are its streets,
his breath its air,
his thoughts its traffic jams
and hidden sylvan streams.
It sprang from his forehead,
surged noisily and moist
from his cloaca.
They share the same rib-skinny soul,
confused by sound and darkness,
silence and light.
Siamese twins,
joined at the heart and the head and the groin.
