Co-Conspirators E-anthology

by Jeffrey Jullich


Since before the invention of the word "time"
By a big-brained Cro Magnon of the Upper Aurignacian
Who later that afternoon beat his brother's face into a smear
I have been hectically running into the distance.

In the youngster's coloring book, I am the missing penguin
Created from its own connect-the-dots heredity.

first published in Columbia Review, 1977
