Maybe It Is Design

There is a phylogenetic tree in the backyard with bare branches and trunks that separate from each other cleanly, as if hand-drawn. The spreading from root to handfuls of leaves at the end of each lineage maps out extinctions, evolutions. The leaves have given way to pink and yellow flower funnels; it’s the opposite order of how I learned Spring. There could not be a more appropriate accidental silhouette behind the research house of two evolutionary anthropologists.
