Genesis. Around The Eighth Chapter

Poem By Andrei Sen-Senkov

on the ark noah lodges stegosaurs tyrannosaurs plesiosaurs
brontosaurs archaeopteryxes iguanodons diplodocuses triceratops
they are small and smiley-faced
they will all fit
everyone will sail off peacefully

it's a long journey

a snow-white pterodactyl
flies out of the ark
and returns bearing a green branch in its mouth
so the banks of hollywood must be nearby
so everyone's been saved for some reason

god hanging on to the branch for dear life
squeaks like a toy in the jaws of a puppy

Translation: Ainsley Morse
