In Childhood
things don't die or remain damaged
but return: stumps grow back hands,
a head reconnects to a neck,
a whole corpse rises blushing and newly elastic.
After skimming the Sunday Times, Dad turned to the back of the magazine
and tore out the crossword puzzle for his mother in Wisconsin—
A Bowl Of Spaghetti
"To find a connectome, or the mental makeup of a person,"
researchers experimented with the neurons of a worm
The Dream Of A Fire Engine
Without the sun filtered through closed eyelids,
without the siren along the service road,
The Sweetwater Caverns
Curious to see caverns,
we detoured in Tennessee
The Dream Of A Lacquer Box
I wish I knew the contents and I wish the contents
Japanese —
The Dream of Knife, Fork, and Spoon
I can't recall where to set the knife and spoon.
I can't recall which side to place the napkin

or which bread plate belongs to me. Or
how to engage in benign chatter.
The Dream of Shoji
How to say milk? How to say sand, snow, sow,

linen, cloud, cocoon, or albino?
How to say page or canvas or rice balls?
Not Nothing
A map on tissue. A mass of wire. Electricity of the highest order.
Somewhere in this live tangle, scientists discovered—

like shipmates on the suddenly-round earth—
Before doctors learn how it is that the brain's lights turn on, they may have to know a lot more about what's happening when the lights are off.
—Benedict Carey
