something old

going through some old poems from college recently and came upon this little one, which i always liked.


The greatest failing of evolution
is that human beings never developed
the ability to purr, express pure

Instead, they use looks and sounds
ambiguous, or words forced out
to clutter up moments
like teacups left on tables.

If language is the one field
in which humanity excels,
this is proof we still
have much to learn.
