How fucking changed everything

byDeepGreenEyes©

One hour ago
gunpowder pounded
medieval walls into
pathetic curiosities.

Thirty two minutes ago
printing presses
first turned, shredding
screaming popes.

Twelve breaths ago
Darwin stared, breathless
at a dead
Galapagos finch.

And now
as our neural limbs, entwined
lay spent
and sticky warm serotonin
dribbles down your inner thigh

I stare in wonder
at the tiny L-shaped smudge
on the
cobalt blue bottle
by the bed.
