the weak cog.

Nice words…

Wallflower Whimsy

Fleeting, Shayne of the Dead Fleeting, Shayne of the Dead

So we’ve got

these things

that are just

the best at

what they do –

fruits and fireflies,

trees and tigers,

demons and dogs,

each commanding

a unique

genetic purpose

without question

or doubt.

Countless creatures

of leaf and fur,

of scale and skin,

of life and breath

working and resting,

foraging and nesting,

attacking and defending,

keeping this

clockwork ticking,

while we struggle

with our big brains

and fancy thumbs

to get at

the meaning

of life.

You’ll never

see a bear

slumped over

on the forest floor

wallowing in

the despair of


an ant paralyzed

by fear of change,

a fern listless

in the wake of

unrequited love.

Human beings are


the most effective

and defective


on the planet.
