Primate Love

The monkey tribe grieves 

over the prone body of what is actually just

A robot baby

while across the globe in human cities 

woman rage and tear

Euphemistic offspring  from their own


Run, human child, to the relative kindness 

of other mammal mothers 

who would never, ever

do these terrible things

to even the semblance of

their own young.
