Is this a fist I see which approaches my face

with steroid-assisted velocity?

Or is this a fist of the mind, an immaculate conception,

gestating in a beer-soaked brain?


If real, that news report now rings true:

we are indeed evolving into crabs

because the fist is truly crustacean-like

huge as a Caribbean conch shell

with blue enameled calluses;

spikey ridges serving as knuckles.


Having now considered the fist close-up

perhaps it was wrong of me to so freely

and so loudly share my concerns about

your too obvious and too intimate

relations with your mother.

After all, you are simply ensuring

your odd traits will be inherited.


So, good for you, Darwin’s Prophet!


Managing to crawl all by yourself

through the septic foam fringing the shoreline

and learning to adapt in a new environment.

Your flat head and crooked legs

proclaim that you are the pathfinder

in evolution’s wilderness.


And well done, too, Darwin’s Pharmacist!


Opting for an unnatural selection of supplements

to enhance bulk and brawn over brains.

Your scrunched brow crusted with barnacles

and those black pebbles passing as eyes

affirm that in the future only mutants

will be fit to survive.
