Short Summary: An attempt to ask, in verse, what Helen Cutter ate while she was away.

Helen Cutter has survived much,

. eight long years of life, alone.

But what did she eat?

. in what eon were her culinary skills honed?

Did she dine upon trilobite eggs and gorgon brains,

. or titanosaur steaks and toothed birds’ legs?

Was her beverage of choice chalicothere milk,

. or wine from the dawn of grain and grapes?

For dessert, did Helen scoop from Opabinia with its own claw,

. or was Miocene caviar more fitting?

The menu of all life, the sheer breadth of it all,

. and at this vast buffet, she dined,


The End
