Or Tales Could Have Invented Words

There’s no beginning,
But there had to be,
Sometime, origin
For storytelling,
However blurry.

You say you’re nothing
Without your stories?
Were your ancestors
Nothing then? Language
From bodies gave rise

To storytelling—
Did it resemble
The stages by which
Children start telling
Stories—and and and?

Humans, near humans,
Beings probably
Similar to you,
Hard to tell apart
Walking from the sun

Toward you, may have
Been fairly decent
At language, and yet
Storyless. Is that
Possible, you think?
