Stegosaurus by Alexander Calder

a million years before
your time,
their were dinosaurs roaming this country,
with oceans of dense jungle,
it made Amazon like a shrub,
in my garden

their was a tremor—
many tremors, dinosaurs went,
the land was calm before
it got burned in ice

people began a think
of being here, with these unknown monsters:
bigger, stronger
those people with their bows and spears,
carved out life

the jungle, ice those original people fled,
and came back stronger,
built a harbor, settlement, town, city
with books of people like:

Mark Twain
Samuel Colt
Adrian Block
Noah Webster

until, you came, you’re not so tall
as the buildings around you,
but bright enough
that I see you shinning
