“We have seen that the members of the same class, independently of their habits of life, resemble each other in the general plan of their organisation.”
— Charles Darwin, “On the Origin of Species”

Start from scratch.

There goes the cult of
the sleepless late twenties,
all burned out matchsticks.

The orbs of their heads
are darker when seen
from above.

Their posture is the arc
of sunset. Beautifully bent.
