free will and the choice of dragons

my choice
today
is between free will

and evolution

I
decided that

or at least …

I think I did
though
somehow
the options were placed
right there
before me

I
determined what my will
would be

never mind never mind
it’s all
compatible
with what I want to do
so …

so
I will be responsible
for the choices
I have made
this time

after all
it’s up to me

but enough of that
I was thinking
of dragons

water dragons
locked into a mini-Galapagos
in the heart
of a city

they chose the place

were attracted
to the place
but now
they are changing
whether they like it
or no

now they know about
giving the middle finger

now they know
if your leg
is too close to home

(bite it)

(bite it hard)

choice-less change
compressed down
into a heartbeat

dug in
deeper

grown larger

flipping
the bird

choices
changes
determinism
now

or maybe
it’s all just random

as it’s meant
to be

I think
I choose that

I believe
it is
compatible
