A Few Moments Ago

A timely response to the memorable SciSchol session on mental disorders.

 

.

A few moments ago,
he recovered from a last migraine,
and thought it was not yet time.

In that moment.
Beneath him is thin, thin ice;
long long night.
He worked to stand.
He stood and scanned.
Oh! Chemicals swarm around whatever gland.
“Hey,” somewhere they ask,
“How much was that ‘he’ in his mind?”

.

A few moments ago,
she booted some computer program,
and restarted her innovation plans.

In that moment,
she had simple, simple templates;
little, little retry.
On the wall were the stuff she made,
Her stuff gave away amazing delight,
“Oh,” Convenient for friends to say, “so nice!”
“Hey,” somewhere they ask,
“How much was that ‘she’ in her designs?”

.

In this moment,
I write this doggerel.
“Hey,” somewhere they ask,
“How much is that ‘I’ amid the lines?”
“Is that ‘I’?”

“I?”
