Anthropomorphism

May 4, 2010 6 comments

What does it feel like to be a tortoise
in the moment when an eagle has latched onto your shell
and bears you upwards
There you are
Above the earth
You never knew you assumed was flat
Millennia of evolution tells you to keep your head retracted
To shut your eyes against the brightly spinning world
Do you listen?
In this moment before the plunge before the black
As every organ protests that this should not be
Do your reptilian eyes glimpse the unanswerable
The unfathomable curve of the horizon
Beneath the infinite sky?
