“In Defense of Mechanisms” — Colin James

“In Defense of Mechanisms”

by

Colin James

                    Pursued, I ran on the litter strewn beach.
                    Dogs howled, glancing back was not productive.
                    Among the less than pristine dunes
                    were painted signs conceived in a hurry,
                    DR. MOREAU NO LONGER PRACTICES HERE!
                    I stumbled, my thighs inconsolably stressed.
                    To pause was not entirely temporary.
                    I heard my own scream not express optimism,

                    that one obtuse voice as close as is to breathing.
