Evolution

A leafy branch landed a bird.
Took it right out of flight.

Not: a bird flew down and landed on a branch.

And since thoughts about origins
get rearranged
all the time these days,

some things fell out, rolled, spun
and took a very long time to settle.

Isn’t that better than: some things I wielded.
