the swimming semen a fuel, an alchemist's
conception for the creation of flesh.
Step One of Man.
the extract of Man
the blood, a suspended mold
confined to a corpse delayed by a lifespan.
plumes of the birth of Man,
pearlescent bulbs growing out of
species in anti-gravity.
results of a great many of us
all dreadfully lucky,
all dreadfully alive
taking for granted the fact that
our Sun doesn't consistently set us on fire.
