Hands Of Hominids
Heikki Huotari

“Dog Wall” by Linda Chapman.

 

 

Untouched by hands of hominids, the only organ of
the cryogenic prototype of note was its antique
veneer. Whatever thumbless hands of hominids had
righteously articulated, only buoyancy would break.
What happened on the earth stayed on the earth.
Until somebody needed me, I would be in the
basement cultivating consequences in collateral and in
the dark.
