Selfies invented by the son of a river god
were rediscovered millennia later. Image
betrays shortcomings of imagination. Look
at the young couple next to a fruit tree
with a sarcastic snake hanging out –
their genitals covered, the fake navel
exposed. Shouldn’t it be other way round?
Be ready then to embrace the Earth
featuring a host of dinosaurs’ bones
implanted to stir up curiosity,
the sky of remote-controlled stars,
and elastic time that could be stretched from
six thousand of something to twenty billion
of something and shrunken back
to a cheerful statement of ignorance.
The bogus universe we are thrown into
reveals vitality of a circular connotation:
it inspires breeding of mud-made figurines.
Keep asking the same question again and again.
Expect the confident answer.
