Muse

Physics, Chemistry, Biology
Philosophy, Psychology
Enzymology, Neurology
coming together
in three pounds
fascinates me no end…

I don’t look out, though
nature is always around
somewhere on the outskirts,
concrete structures surround
but restrict, more than expand

I wonder 
what my dog thinks
before giving so much
tirelessly, selflessly
or the sly cat
who loves me, but
protects her own interest

Humans, of course ….
the complex machines
I’m still developing
science and engineering 
to make sense of
all that I see, feel and hear

It is the brain
that will remain
my muse
today and forever…
trapped
inside the cranium
reaching planetariums
