a fossil discovered by archaeologists
in the Gobi Desert
shows a set of bones
they were put in a museum after being mounted
this satisfied people’s imagination of the past

the dirt down at people’s feet
once blood and meat
just at the moment light’s received
the past of eyes and actions
locked for over a hundred million years
now litter compared to the skeleton
for the unearthing project
and yes, for the world’s evolution

the science of decomposition
and the earth under feet
have never been so true
to those who visit the museum
