of course we answer when the moon calls
but we also sing to the sun
stretch out our lizard forms with desire
for nothing more than hot rock
plunge our hangovers into the
pre-summer waters of the south coast
we say it’s a purification but we are already perfect
not one thought in our heads
just soft tissue and wordless yearning
baby I’m feeling pre-cambrian tonight
nostalgic for the ocean floor and
endless evolutionary possibilities
not one email to be sent
our algae gleaming in the light
of the new sun, which is already quite old
plenty of kingdoms still to be considered
and politely declined
no thank you, but we wish you the best
with your kings and your wars
we will be here sunning ourselves
enjoying the mere experience of
multicellular being
we will be here
