The Hope Of Evolution

by Nevada Kerr

Don't lie to me doll
They're living down there
Conjugal pairs with strange devotions
After the demise of the multiples
These creatures with studded faces
Appeared in the oceans

I felt a stir when they wriggled
A tremor when they winked
I stumbled when they squirmed and giggled
And their pink antennas linked

I'm warning you they're clotting
In that blue and briny waste
Mutations awaiting our intentions
As we run to stay in place
