GO, APE

Crowned by sunbleached pate


Natures instrument ponders origins


with calm simian gaze


restive below beetling brow.


Tectonic sutures crowd to


seal the vault against assault


from unbelievers.


Weary with the weight of era,


white worms descend


to gather at the maw.


Pliocene dust accretes on


shoulders of monolithic patience


with empirical conviction
