homo sapiens how was your day
was your day full or empty
memorable or forgettable
enjoyable, undeniable
relatable, secretable
distant, touchable

homo sapiens how was your night

how long did it take to start traveling at night
how long did it take to . Stop,
and wait for a moment and sleep and travel again?

homo sapiens makes fire

homo sapiens how was your memory?
yesterday when it was brighter
tomorrow, yesterday
A hundred years has just passed by
Are you hungry a hundred years has just passed by are you thirsty
Can you remember five years?
homo sapiens are you remembering or sleeping?
are you sleep standing
are you sleep walking
are you sleep thinking
are you sleep drinking
are you sleep sleeping?
lets walk over there

homo sapiens how is your walk?
of course
homo sapiens sees wild animals,
animals still wild, but not really wild 'cos
no tame animals has homo sapiens ever seen so all animals are wild

homo sapiens how are your animals?
the fast fleet feet<
or soft round arms
let me imagine

here is a mountain
and here is homo sapiens imagining a mountain
the mountain has feet
the mountain has legs
homo sapiens has feet and legs
in distance, another place,
and thinks ..
home.
Back, suddenly or slowly I'm not sure, slowly or suddenly
Noticed suddenly
A natural event formed
Heat . 32 2 1
A conversation between
Richard and David and Jennifer and
anyone who writes to anyone
electronic by-pass
thoroughbred
wind on the skin of the horse,
brushed, washed, arranged, sweated, hosed all that
all that. It's getting cold
when was it . ending not ending
homo sapiens makes bread
homo sapiens grows vegetables in winter
flowers, sells flowers
homo sapiens sells flowers
homo sapiens rides motorbikes
homo sapiens goes to war
homo sapiens hides his clothes, swims, finds his clothes,
dries, lays down and sleeps.

How was your night, homo sapiens?
vhomo sapiens makes friends
homo sapiens' friends make friends
homo sapiens painting his face
homo sapiens discovering mercury
homo sapiens listening ..
homo sapiens .<
homo sapiens happy
homo sapiens enjoying the feeling of happiness
homo sapiens jumps off a cliff
homo sapiens runs to the supermarket before it closes
eggs
homo sapiens remembers making cheese
homo sapiens remembers making family
homo sapiens remembers making family in order to make sense of making the cheese

I dream I sleep I wake I dream I sleep
homo sapiens on and on and on and on and on
homo sapiens changes
homo sapiens in prison
homo sapiens weaves cotton
homo sapiens drives his friends mad
homo sapiens goes mad
homo sapiens recovers
homo sapiens studies the inside of the body with knives and a pencil
homo sapiens notices tears flowing from his eyes, down his cheeks, and remembers
homo sapiens walks out of the sea and homo sapiens turns around
and walks back into the sea and climbs aboard a boat
homo sapiens discovers sugar
homo sapiens sharpens knives and practices cutting the air

homo sapiens says 'I am not homo sapiens .'
And homo sapiens says 'yes, you are. Ask homo sapiens and she will tell you,
in a thousand different ways.'

homo sapiens makes foreigners, the other side of the mirror
homo sapiens discovers again and again, evening .spring..death
homo sapiens wonders whether it is painted on the outside
or whether it erupts from the inside
homo sapiens throws stones and they break in two
and homo sapiens smells the two halves
and homo sapiens thinks that the two halves are better than the one

homo sapiens 1953 - completely inside
hardly seeing anything
but already hearing quite a lot.
