POEM: Consciousness

By Berniegourley @berniegourley

POEM: Consciousnessit's a lighthouse in the wilderness

shining a spray of consciousness

over all that is surveyed

experiencing the world through a window

framed by this meat machine,

which is optimized for chasing down prey

over long stretches of African savanna

maybe there is so much more

as so many boldly claim to know

but neither they nor i have the mechanism to know it

- even if we have a masterpiece mechanism for believing it -

so, i'll not yet extend my footings into the darkness
