Apes Stoned On Theory

animal-3346192_640.jpg



When primates dropped down
from African canopies;
traveled across savannas,
strong arms swinging—
knuckles leaving leathered prints
in the dusted past—

which one thought,
Let me eat this funny looking thing,
mushrooming out of dung?


And after taking the trip,
came back for more,
convinced others to ride along?

Imprinting on primate minds
the need to touch
what can’t be seen
and the belief
that the vastest savanna
lies behind the eyes.
