Ba: Cvii: Light And Taste - Poem by douglas scotney

You could surmise
that light and taste
extend the brain
to eliminate surprise;

that things becoming plainer
and tongue discrimination
bring surprise elimination,
(another name for death):

and if that's what the brain's about,
isn't it plain
what light and taste are for:
to obfuscate the brain?
