The Capra Conundrum
by Alan Berecka

In one corner of the universe
a monkey keeps hitting the I key
of an old type writer, expecting
the banana that won’t come.

In another corner of the universe,
the angel in charge of making wings
is being overwhelmed with orders
and running out of possible takers.

And in another corner of universe
preachers and sinners begin to sense
a new hope as the eye of the needle
stretches into a camel sized hula hoop.
