Post Humans

I
Opaque forest green accent
smells like the sprinkles of the sun
coat yourself in the Earth’s blanket
bare skin, the way humans should be.

Return to the beginning at the end.

After the extinction of humans,
they’ll make drums out of our skin and bones
xylophones, exquisite cello bows,
that emit a minuscule sound,
a weak growl.

Post humans will absorb
the repercussions of human history.
II
the woods.
the cave.
the new home.

wipe out humanity.

exhaustion of resources.
grease slick on our skin.
shower every three months.

the post humans, they will use us.
as we used each other.
we will be the dogs, the horses, the donkeys.
