The Brain Named Itself

Blows my mind every time: how
intricate & delicate and sometimes
complex and complicated a body can be
(like a tailor-made personality
subject to change, doomed to age)

An orderly mix of components
the organs;
sharing blood and oxygen the same/
within thought a tender string of hopes and dreams busting at the seams
sometimes frayed/

Sometimes

cut clean off

altogether
