Miss My Dad
Wading through the grass out here, looking for outcrop - a bit off the road and all of a sudden you forget the road was there, no cars on it anyway - the wind has a snap to it and the air seems to be changing temperature quickly - for some reason I hear my dad's voice in my head saying,
"This is what the First Man saw, we are looking through his eyes now...",
and for a second I'm thinking, "Yah, Dad, that's awesome, this is amazing".
And Dad-in-my-head goes on, "... except not from the water, because he was an aquatic ape, see, and he would have parked his submarine under the pyramids over there that the aliens helped build out of solid gold..."
And Me-in-my-head goes, "Now wait a minute dad, there's no evidence for the aquatic ape theory, and besides, first evidence of man is farther north in the rift valleys, and wait a minute, MAN, anyway, you forget about LUCY obviously, you patriarchal schmuck...."
