Brain Stands at Attention

Evelyn Posamentier

brain stands at attention long after war's end
biotechnology breaks a leg, wears a cast

brain makes a break for it, but fails
clinical trial halted, tectonic plates gasp

i am sailing to the other side
fog of brain stills the surface

long after war's end, doctor extends a hand
girl steps out of photo, leaves her face behind

clinical trial approaches unflinchingly
pharmaceuticals wait it out
