jellyfish evolve near the end of page seven
and neanderthals appear almost right at the bottom of the last page,
just before a circle which represents “The entire history of poetics.”
In actual fact,
as explained in a footnote,
this last marker throws the whole scale off
and it should be drawn as one ten thousandth of an inch.
a remarkably self-deprecating introduction
to a man many would see as a conceptual moron,
even “the rock star poet” as the biography,
he is me and I am just a stupid, silly
who likes to get lost
in everything he does,
what's the difference?
