I drank water just a sip
from the dark lagoon that was
all it took to throw the data
topsy turvy into a realm
of forgotten deadlines missing links
remote mineral sky.
What had I expected? More dust to grind
chomping on shreds plant material
it was old hat I was newly hatched
a minute past noon daylight savings time.
Those twins their transfusions
my dream of them free free
walking around in animal form.
