Brain, inc.

by Kevin T McEneaney

Your brain remains an obscure paradox:

a huge filing cabinet of pictures,

a lightning move in improvised chess game,

an insouciant stroll in Spring downpour,

a large warehouse of lost inventory,

a bicycle race on a downhill course,

a child’s room of discarded toys,

a pillow of forgotten memories,

an electrical circuit of fear,

a funhouse of cheerful reminiscence.


You are advised to organize your brain

into a tall building like the Chrysler

where elevators work efficiently

and windows open to broad scenic views….
