AT&T and G and C

Fuck, it’s weird that evolution
Is a game of telephone
That started with one whispered word
And led to Hucks and Finnegans.

And not on purpose, though it’s hard to
Abandon teleology.
“How many trillions of generations
Did it take to whisper me?”

(And you too, who, through aching billions
Of years of sex whispered through
Our common darkness, hushed library,
Stitched and bound with horsehoof glue.)

Fucking weird that evolution
Is a game of telephone;
A million million million million
Whispers draw the blood from stone.
