tiny synapses moving in parallel




what else bursts:

radio static into song or talk                                                                               

this season into the next

the image of a face through the ice

flavor from Skittle-worlds in your mouth

and your susceptibility to marketing                                                                 

sugar & these moments from your childhood

as vividly rendered and present

as anything from yesterday or the last

awfulness with your lover

which suggests the brain

is as full of this detritus as it can be without ceasing

and its operations

should not be trusted.
