Of Darwin and God

Of Darwin and God

A Poem by Abigale LeCavalier

Of Darwin and God

The life and the breath,


of Darwin and God,

thinking the footprints

are a monkeys

not mans.


Doesn’t really matter

When coated with sugar,

listening to

Airborne Toxic Event.


Blood from the feet

and palms,


or a drunken fall

down a flight of stairs.


A bison has never

played a guitar,

or hummed a Beatles tune,

or a beetles tune.


“And it starts,

sometime around midnight.”

echoes down the halls

of every library,


and church.


It’s all pain really.



that’s the hard part.


Not buying bananas

at the H.E.B.
