history and sterile vegetables

by David McLean

history washes over them,
sterile vegetables asserting empathy
and inventing ethics,

making extravagant assertions
about mental states,
though i never noticed

they were wearing them like flags
on their hats, they seemed to be bodies,
numb and more or less ugly -

and that was that
