Serpentine Evolutions

We changed against our will
our bodies taking it upon themselves
to adapt
to become more useful.

Our legs dissipated generations ago
elongating our torsos into serpentine tails
so now we slither
keeping our core tighter
maintaining a type of fitness
(once)
regularly worked towards
but hardly ever attained.
(could you imagine?)

We are become like Zhulong
without the possibilities
of creating the day
and forcing the night.
Looking to the past
hoping to understand our body’s migration.
The changes we suffer became
a constant source of obsession
forcing us to appreciate and value
the way we are now
not knowing what changes the future
will bring.
