Aspeciation

Tom Rowe

I am the first of a new genus.

I say to the insulating skin.
I say to the motor of the feet.
I say to the dent in the femur.
I say to the alloys of the alleles.
I say to the polished gleam of the bicep.
I say to the rusting of the curtseying calves.

I am the first of a new genus – I have to be.
