Linguistics; poem; "Skullhold"


The brain is rather small;
just about as wide, just about as tall,
as the skull it lives in.
Tap it even lightly, it will swell
and kill you. It just barely fits
where it sits.

On the other hand, there is the mind.
In all the universe, we cannot find
anything that's larger. The mind stores
infinities of metaphors, ready to be broken
to the tongue. Ready to be spoken.

No one can explain
how the spacious mind fits in the brain.
