Two members of mankind

were sitting, killing time

looking out onto the world.

They both spoke the words;

“See all that we have built”.

One was smiling,

The other crying.


Coyotes (excerpt) – Modest Mouse

Coyotes tiptoe in the snow after dark
At home with the ghosts in the national parks
Mankind’s behavin’ like some serial killers
Giant ol’ monsters afraid of the sharks

And we’re in love with all of it
And we say: “What can we say?”
