The Cranium

The bony limits of a cosmos
filled with private networks
of highly adjustable, electric
circuits powered by a
stellar chemistry that mimics
the creation of space.

The control centre of
human actvivity, where
the true self is switched
on or off
by seemingly random
influences beyond
personal control.
 

The egg shell of what
some call soul,
while others
call it a cauldron.
Yet, regarded by most
as the origin of thought.
Perhaps, the seat of God.
