injured bird
in my shoebox
**** Darwin
grumble of the semi’s
greedy gut, gobbling my ancestors
wheels turning like time
jaybird shrieking
cursing God or Gravity
- her egg still falls
“To Hell with Descartes!”
          Scream anxious knots in my back
Tangled like body and mind
the languid bee
sulks on parking lot weeds
soon we all will rest
the swatted fly bursts
      like the Big Bang
I am God
the flyswatter hovers  
      hesitating -  
should I play God today?
