#100poeticanswers 57: Why Can’t I Be Animal?

May 9, 2017 by Sez

One of many questions asked by Josiah, courtesy of NPR

You are an animal 

With teeth and blood and hunger.

But unlike most animals 

But just like me,

You know the concept “animal”

And that there are animals

And there are not-animals

So you will always be

The kind of animal that doubts

 Its animality.
