happy wakeup day, paul longo's got poems over at gramma daily



The last day of history hears you wake up

The Some Things Have to Be Killed and That’s It, Period
was a period of great success for dinosaurs.
I love the lag between the moment they died
and the moment they understood their anger
demanded too many resources.
The day after the big round up everyone thinks
we had the home stretch all to ourselves.
And the planet thinks, the proper use of planets
is to send everyone home.
Planets must be cleaned between uses
to reduce animal anxiety.
Our anxiety comes from the vegetable world
and it doesn't mind, the earth doesn’t
mind to receive it again.
