Friday Poem: 'And as we followed dinosaurs'

A Friday poem from Kae Tempest's Hold Your Own.


A Friday poem from Kae Tempest's Hold Your Own. 

Whatever follows us
Will hunt for footprints in the lowlands,
And piece together fragments of our habits
From the internet.

A fossilised smartphone preserved behind glass
For the new young to traipse past on school trips,
Yawning.
