Bones of giants rise from the earth
after the grinding passage of eons
and man reassembles them, awestruck,
beholding in wonder the great beasts
that lived and breathed and ate and bred
long before time was reckoned.
A tow-headed child plays on the floor
with plastic figures in their likeness.
She is still a newcomer to this world,
smooth-skinned and flawless, curious,
younger than some of our houseplants,
and half the age of our cat.
Her unfolding mind has already seized
upon the remains forever impressed in stone.
The spreading roots of her developing neurons
lock them inside synaptic cages.
She plays them, reads them, draws them, acts them
with an almost religious obsession.
The one they named Tyrannosaurus Rex
roars again through her small pink mouth,
the groan of Stegosaurus emerges from her throat,
Velociraptor races upon her slender legs in hunt,
at dinnertime, Brachiosaurus nibbles its broccoli.
Sixty-five million years after death
they are resurrected by the human imagination,
brought back to life in museums and movies,
channeled like voodoo spirits through the body of my daughter,
and suddenly immortality
is more than a dream.
