Sirenia

why did the brain incubate all those years
why not using its incalculable genius to make fire
my what size you are my hominid & of intellect, not strewn about
why are you at the root of my word lanthanien—to escape notice
why do you explore the periphery of latere—to lie hidden
inside a universe with a hidden dimension
one tries curling up inside of
what if & why

(Anne Waldman, from Manatee/Humanity)
