Illustration for poetry homo sapiens, beta release (click image for larger version). evolved from a discarded shopping cart lying on a river bank by VEE, the visual evolution engine. Here is a teaser:
Proteus scratched his prescient ears
and speculated on his future.
He saw that he would rest in layered shale,
interleaved and carboniferous,
until he floated above an ancient tar pit,
a misty morning evanescence
in the era of the plasticine Anthropocene.
