Here is a sample poem:
Lab-articulated Passenger Pigeons grow animate,
assimilate to survive a new world.
So much furtive futuring
with the wrong eyes
about history’s patent veracity.
What culture remains from this culturing?
Salvation’s negated by the damnation of seeming.
Passenger Pigeons pass clouds in body, dissolve in being.
