Next Apollo Project

Saint Paul, 6 February 2009
 
What idiot knows that
half our brain evolved
to reassure us that
the invisible particles
meant to define our bodies
are inexplicably distinct
from the rest of
the atomic jello?

Our next Apollo project
should study
brain chemistry

If we understood
the composition
of reality

Would the accident
of thought be somehow
less wonderful?
