Exchange

My dopamine—receptors

and recipe—for stoicism:

adopt a plywood novelty

 

as ewes overdosed

on oxytocin chew

the crestfallen auras

of abandoned lambs

 

like clover leaves.

This tastes happy

 

but new, weaving limited-

edition diaphragms from hay

fever to nest heaving breaths.

 

I’m yoked to the pituitary gland.

Wheezing with the lunacy seasons.

Alive. I’d rather be the wheels.

Hello, fellow bundle of nerves and flesh! I'm a simple little being who's half-poet, half-scientist, and all gelatinous chaos. Sort of like an illogical marshmallow. If you'd like to learn more, please seek out the "First Impressions" page. Thank you for the visit, bundle friend.

    1. Thank you for the offer: I am quite flattered. 🙂 However, I prefer to keep my social media and poetry separate (note how I have none of my accounts–Twitter, Facebook, etc.–linked here). Despite this, if you show me the group, I’d absolutely love to see it and comment in it.
