black widows and bonobos

us primates never figured it out

I don’t bare my ugly red inflamed ass like a baboon

and the only time I thump my chest is to smash a beer can

but that’s us, picking out lice

my apartment already has cockroaches

so lets not pretend were in the wild

a concrete jungle of crack vials snapping under your huge heels

and homeless shopping cart armies screaming like lost hyenas in the night

let me be your ape, your animal

the only species that fucks face to face

look me in my eye

let me  make every monkey jealous when I ginger you with my opposable thumb

were animals

so lets leave the humans in our skin

and let our DNA do the talking
