Thumbs

Dreamed 1989/6/12 by Chris Wayan

All over the world, hands have gone
rubbery, soft... stretchable as
latex gloves full of water.
Idly, we curious apes
mold paws to idle, curious shapes.

Not just human hands, of course.
I meet some animal people, newly evolved--
furred, tailed, deep-eyed. Their forepaws are
clever but still stubby. I advise
"Be sure to make

opposable thumbs--good hands are a great
advantage. Beware--who knows when
this era of thumb-fluidity will end?
Don't get stuck in a bad design."

Hmm. I wonder if that might apply
to any other recent changes. Mine?

Sketch of a dream: thumbs have gone soft and gooey.
