<b>Notes on Endangered Species #1</b> // Notas sobre las animales en peligro de extincion #1

Keywords: poems, extinction, animals, internet, second nature

Abstract

      I engage with the vulnerable or extinct animal body via internet, viral video or the newspaper. I'm no activist biologist (though Dian Fossey is my patron saint). My only chance to reach the molding creature is by fixing my eyes obsessively on the reptilian screen while petting the dog under my desk. And I take notes.

 

Resumen

      Me comprometo con el animal vulnerable o el extinto a través de internet, del vídeo viral o del periódico. No soy un viólogo activista (aunque Dian Fossey es mi santa patrona). Mi única oportunidad de ponerme en contacto con la criatura moldeada es al fijar mis ojos obsesivamente en la pantalla reptiliana mientras acaricio el perro bajo mi escritorio. Y tomo notas.
