time unborn

by Matthew Sharp

embryonic shell
a film on the gene pool
the membrane
floating its captor to shallowness
the rube
lured into chance
to enhance the propagation
of a nimble seed
humbled by the greed
of the selfish gene
the phenotype
lost at face value
the carrier
dormantly hollow
shunning timeless immortality
for immediate gratification

But sometimes it just feels good, and apparently that seems to be enough for a moment.
