summer days milling about
the alleys and backyards that
stretch on like a secret maze
never the same
“deceptive lizard”- Apatosaurus
Marsh, the inventor of the brontosaurus made a purposeful mistake. The bones for his creation were assembled from a head and a body found in separate quarries, as well as in different strata. Yet it remains one of the most complete skeletons ever exposed even to this day. A fabrication of magic and legend warming out hearts to the cold blooded building sized lizard.
One must study their prey before the hunt in order not to be deceived.
hairless bodies clamber within the corridors of their papery spit sack;
ever-expanding production to satisfy the tireless needs of their queen.
the systematic ticking of the gauge as it spins is
patterned with humming wings and scurrying feet.
things i miss
things i can do without
things which fly
