Tripeds from Outer Space

By Matt Praxmarer

There was a
planet of 2
suns Instead of
one. Triped citoyens
observed not light
and dark as
bipeds do, but
3 daily epochs
From which to
conceive of stone
age cosmologies. Evil
was the dim.
Good was the
Bright. The triped’s
time was the
inbetween, When the
orange orb hides
somewhat and the
red dawdles like
dusk. Tripeds could
never see a
black or a
white, as primary
colors constant caressed
atmospheres. There were
no pious men.
There were no
dirty fiends. They
in between.
