Ode to my brain

Hardworking lump
labyrinth of mental grit
you eat information
like plankton
and you are the whale

you clamour to know everything
except how to

it evokes terror in your winding nest
for you are the momentum of more

but don’t you see
just because we rest between meals
doesn’t annihilate
the belly

you have my permission to pause
recline against the dome of my skull
exhale your responsibilities
your regrets

there is a heart
in the back row
who has been waiting patiently
for so long
for her turn
to answer.
