Love in the Time of Triceratops


want you 

to remember  

the way I smelled  

in the sun, in the shade 

standing tall, a pyramid  

consumed. collected remnants  

of things long gone, I still want you  

to whip the polarized lenses from your eyes  

in disbelief, in awe, with the pure admiration  

of Jeff Goldblum as Ian Malcolm for things since passed. 

Renee Agatep quotes Jurassic Park at least three times a day and can’t think about the word “sap” without recalling that strand of animated DNA’s inexplicable southern accent. She is a 2020 Best of the Net nominee and her poetry appears in many places unlikely to appreciate this pile of dinosaur doo-doo. She can be found on Twitter @GoingByRenee.
