Life Wrought Small

The One Cell Sell

O to live as one cell in a pond,
of such a life I could grow fond:
never needing to work,
nothing to shirk,
to be one of a sea of paramecia
bristling with cillia
and swim past that foxy
crowd of volvox.

On second thought
I’d rather not.
You don’t even get a tax deduction
from asexual reproduction.

  1. HILARIOUS. I sent it to my friend. She’s called Ilia and she won’t let go of the fact that some people called her ‘Cillia’ when she was in high-school.
