Man’s primal instinct 

was not the hunting instinct  

in ancient times  

before man had spears and weapons  

he roamed the prairies  

and he was gathering!  

he was gathering roots  

and he was gathering fruits 

and eggs and nuts  

and selfdead animals

I can feel how the primal man breaks forth  

when I race with the cart  

and I gather and gather and gather…
