Neurone observé au microscope optique.
Much in the voluminous landscape
escapes my eye
except perhaps in my peripheral view
and there, takes up residence
in some part of my body
that I don’t know well.
A part that works on some other kind of circuit
and is wired
you can’t see
and I can’t touch.
Images are fed onto neuron pathways
on an as needed basis
like the flutter of white fingers
near your collar at a party
or a card indiscriminately shoved
between car seats.
If I can disconnect the circuit—
If I do that
will the pain of these
pass into synapse unheeded?
