The Evolution of Birds

J. David

The bartender slices limes and you recognize everyone

in the world. They come mostly in replaceable parts.

Some are punctual and probably enjoying actionable concepts.

Having good lungs. Chewing the rag about clean gutters

on god-machine’s house. A physicist gives the eulogy for your dog

and all futurism becomes apocalypse writing. You start crying

when you think about our responsibilities to the dead.
