Mutation Manifests Phylogeny
Our new, ever present device, held in right or left hand;
We sit, lie, walk, and more, with our 'other connections'.
Are we ever able to have our continual mechanical companion
Be disconnected from our minds and from our thumbs?
Will this new device lead us to yet another
New mutation, now of thought,
As mutation has created our opposable thumb?
As with the diminution of our molars--
Not needing to chew so incessantly on branches,
Or as with the basic uselessness of our appendix,
Now not needing an additional digestive organ?
But remember, our embryonic tail is ephemerally present
Because of ontogeny--not because of more recent disuse!
