Men and Their Machines
by Sumiko Saulson

Mounds of earth covered me like flesh here, where I’d slept for many ages… head tipped, back arched, leg crossed over my belly. That was before they awakened me. Men with their machines dug into the ground beneath my feet. My toes bled where the skin was broken. Now, I inhale the dust, gathering my strength for the day when I can rise up from this dust and destroy them.
Today was a good day. I could feel some sensation in my toe, after centuries of neuropathy. A man showed up in a bulldozer to hallow out the space between my knees. I rose up and kicked his wicked steel device. The ground shook, and the machine shivered. A tire burst.
Tomorrow, I will rise. I will shake the earth to its core! Men will feel the trembling ground, screaming of earthquakes and tremors. Then, I will stand! Bending down, I will scoop them up into my hands, one by one… and eat them.
How I miss the taste of human flesh.
