Chlorophyll

I want to be chlorophyll
In the tree of the world
Not this little hair on a root that I am

You will say “You are not dynamic”
I will say, in low tones  “here take these nutrients to the the leaves on top, up
in the sunlight ”

When you leave I will sit in the darkness
feeling no warmer than 50°F
Dynamic must be closer to 80°

Simeon Mexico

Driving the chimp to Mexico
Road signs are a blur.
the sun knows the way
Our body clocks tic like bushman as the cacti fly by
At the border we thread the needle of confusion
We drink water with our faces right     down in our respective reflections
                        Simeon
                   Homo sapien
Under a burning sky
Broken  by the shadows of vultures

Bubbles in the water

August 15,2025

H.L. Fredrickson, a biology professor for Acclaim University,  has cracked the code!
After 42 years of continuing the earlier works of Patrick Volvus, much acclaimed anthropologist ,who spent the latter part of his life by ponds and slow streams watching for a change in the surface, Fredrickson has opened the door that Volvus was beating upon up to the day he died. It has now been proven that turtles are ,in fact, communicating with us through their bubbles! Although there have been many skeptics and only a faithful few who followed the research, no one could have imagined the far reaching implications of this study,this unprecedented breakthrough, this life changing event! It turns out the the turtles are outlining a plan to end epidemics and world hunger as well as details about a new way of government that some how maximizes the potentials of unity and independence! Fredrickson is expected to release a full report early next week.
