A Lesson in Cognition

[ir]relevant lines/
neurological formations
that image [counterfeit body]
still scratches at the door
that image must take her clothes off:
light, heat, & purity
& the cherries
blossom at the other edge
of the coast
& that reverberating revelation
whispers in the ears of the dawn—

an invisible mole burrows beneath
the subconscious networks
of the mind
