Play Those Old Anthropomorphic Blues

they have separate vocabularies
that last whole books
of kingdoms on earth
or longest names of any creature
equal in numerology
which recognizes holy men
by the images on their bodies
halved like fruit to reveal
our first crime of distinction
unfinished lists of actions
speak louder than orders
mashed reeds against the leather
spines of learned men
align to send energies to heavens
