The deer is sneezing; behold its pink tongue.

Did you know machines exist to brush cows,

To polish the beasts to a fine luster?

Watch this baby laugh. Look at this kitten

Roar. Have you seen the slow loris? Little

Baby elephants play with their mother.

 

We speak in curated inanity.

Sad little seals blinking watery eyes,

Penguins slipping, falling through ice and snow.

This is the only language we have left

Images and video speak for us.

(So much to ask of these silly pictures!)

 

But I have to know, have you seen the one

Where otters hold hands and then I love you?
