Brain Takes the Scenic Route

Evelyn Posamentier

the girl in the photo allows the others to go ahead of her.
all in all, empty cans adorn a house.

brain takes the scenic route:
no talk of axonal damage.

brain is courageous, rescues girl from photo.
empty, braincolored rooms adorn the girl's orbit.

a biohazardous smile threatens the girl.
brain takes no notice and steps over the homeless bodies.

a rainbow of whole brain atrophy sneaks up like summer.
let's not speak of axonal damage.
