Bipedalism is Uncritically Accepted as a Given Among Humans
“Walking assuages or legitimizes…alienation.” Wanderlust: A History of Walking, Rebecca Solnit July 32 2014
I did not crawl.
Some say that’s a shame
And did something to the development of my brain.
I struggled gravely,
To stand on two hind legs.
Alone, I overcame my fear of edges
And countless other obstacles
Then walked across a carpet to my smiling Nan.
This monstrous victory was applauded
And from that I learned
That going against nature
Has its own rewards.
