what if we were one among many . . .

Habilis, erectus, neanderthalensis

before sapiens, did they

see pantheons in night skies. Did they picture

the sun a devastating god. Did they see she

as he. Did they see him as swallowing

worlds. Did they burn sand

into glass, dissect the universe

into strings, and try to become singular

beings. They did not see the sun

as middle ground average. Can the star

imagine himself as modest when they would

make him hierophant and order; when they

would look up in the sky; find the reason

for everything and become a new branch.
