Wasted Design

patterns and faces
the core of art
sign posts
one way arrows pointing back
where we came from
gods and spirits
squabbling and spiting
smiting crops and settlements
deified shepherds, goat keeps and hunters
scrambling the signal
muddling information
our clear communication
with one another
with the environment
the concerns of our gods
the nature of our art
all of it evidence
of our evolution
the physical bile, blood and phlegm
of our existence
our thirst, our hunger
our politics and culture
arise burning from DNA
as simple as that
a big picture so banal
a design so prosaic
no intelligence
upon it
would waste itself
