Moon Jelly 1

Calmly, serenely the moon jelly floats:
	Its transparent umbrella-body,
	nearly invisible,
	four orange nodules in the center surround a mouth --
That's all there is:
	brainless, legless.
It traps food and consumes.

Is this we tomorrow?
Body and mouth?
	Visionless and adventureless?
Consuming and consuming.
