Galapagos is Where I Land

057

 

 

 

I am a mutation,
we all are, little worms
of DNA from crotchety
dead people, old books
and photographs exercising
their wish for Natural Selection
by housing themselves in a
brand new corpse-in-waiting.

(an excerpt from my slowly evolving book of short poems: Chloroform for the Soul)
