i was birthed from a cactus

I was birthed from a cactus
and coddled by the sand
But soon i felt baleen sweep over me
and octopus tentacles grab my feet.
When I was birthed for the second time,
I came out of the ground in a bog
and knew I would soon be a mummy.
I closed my eyes and hoped to be born with the snow-
But instead, I was returned to the galaxy.
I was birthed from a cactus
and later saw fish heads on chopping boards.
From the mud, I grew a shrunken head between my shoulders and learned how to die-
No one told me I would become the stars.
