Testing a Theory

Electric neon pulsations
of translucent fire
bubble up
beneath the boiling
gene swarm soup
with liquid molten intentions
toward evolutionary revelations

Single celled respiration
organizes through
fluxes of chaos
until stuffed gills
swell to the brink
and burst
with a snap, crackle, pop
of self-aware
seething to surface
from out the sea
by answering the siren’s song
to test the footing
of the high life
upon solid ground
where oxygen flows freely
into gasping lungs
adamant about embracing adaptation
