Natural Selection

Natural Selection

written by: Lenore Weiss



We live in a bafflement
of words like smoke
from a fire making eyes tear

and throats scratchy
only we don’t realize

we are being talked to death
by dyslexic vapors

fucking with our hearing
playing everything backward

so we think violence, killing, and rape
could be kind of normal

and just like that
we keep evolving
into another life form.
