Aping History
avermitsky

our morning was more
 1
 
 
-a canary cave test
 2
            &             less
 3
-a mimicking parrot
 4
 
 
could we?
 5
with little fear of
 6
should we - in time - fit it in?
 7
 
 
that’s why we fuck: for fuck’s sake,
 8
for the empire,
 9
for the people,
 10
for the glory of this dawn:
 11
still hours
 12
 
 
and when you get your ass
 13
workside – boss man tell you how
 14
pretty young wives: dew feeted
 15
type letters
 16
 
 
what a caveman! he is
 17
over dinner: steak tartar
 18
 
 
while ancient neighbors
 19
send static signals in
 20
fully equipped,
 21
electric dwellings
 22
 
 
you said:
 23
what a hole! their TV,
 24
these thin walls
 25
 
 
you’d rather paint the evening
 26
morning colors
 27
 
 
red: for time
 28
green: for space
 29
yellow: for canaries
 30
 
 
future rulers,
 31
grateful deep dark swallows,
 32
-finite air
 33
