History’s Abstract

Howdy and tip of the hat:
dignity myths forgot 
the Bering Strait
and ice and large mammals
and potency and fragrances
and otters and seals
and hats and shoes.

Luxuriation breathes deep
when pride is doing fine.
Expectations made the 
civil into a law and fences
into every neighbor.

Craters have stories
as do skeletons
and old furniture
if you've got 
the right chemistry set.

Bunsen burn and burn and 
burn again: test cases 
bring confidence to those
who once called their hands
all there was and now 
they make words 
and worship them
as gods.
