Joshua Dinkin (March 8,1985 / Boca Raton, Florida)
A Cauldron of All Things
A vision of brilliance, a portrait of dreams,
The swaying of daisies, the splashing of streams,
Such beautiful music, playing in chorus,
The poems of Hesiod, Homer and Horace!
The myriad animals, their wondrous faces,
Exploring the oceans and faraway places,
Swimming with Pisces, wrestling with Taurus,
Finding the fossils of Tyrannosaurus!
The eyes of a lion, the blood of an ox,
The heart of a hummingbird, the wits of a fox,
The skin of an elephant, so thick and so porous—
A cauldron of all things, bubbling before us!
