dominant gene

dominant gene
by LeRoy Gorman

triceratops & pterosaur
ribs & wings fine dining
for the discerning time traveler
that’s what the sign said
where I met the vegan
Cro-Magnon temptress
I gave up my meat-eating ways
went back with her to a cave
in the hills of southern France
& we had offspring a little off in looks
but close enough to blend in

LeRoy Gorman lives in Napanee, Ontario. His most recent book of poetry is fast enough to leave this world (Inkling Press).
