Science Fiction apocalypse post apocalypse evolution social issues

What does humanity do if the next sentient species evolves...and starts to out-compete us? A version of this story was published in Digital Science Fiction in 2011; however I disagreed with some of the edits. What I'm presenting here is the original, unedited version. It may be a little rough in places, but it holds more of my intent as the author. Content warning: There is a racial slur in this story. I believe it is used in a context which implies it is not an acceptable word.

Horror Literary Fiction Science Fiction Romance Other Dimensions quantum physics lgbtqia+ metaphysics The Beatles gay non-linear lgbt breakup slipstream

This story first appeared around last year's Valentine's Day, and ironically, it's a love story about a breakup. Also, metaphysics, sculptures, and weird objects showing up in your living room from other dimensions, with offhand cameos from the Beatles and the Eleventh Doctor. This is my queer unabashed love letter to all things metaphysical. It also came straight out of one of the weirdest dreams I've had. (Why thank you, my subconscious.)
