2.951 : 12/10/07 : Stimulus, Response

I am an insect
dreaming I’m a man
bet I’m in good company
part of a sprawling clan
wish I had new habits
wish I had new clues
wish this constant ferment
would stew something I could use
but I’m just an insect
locked in stimulus, response
the history I bury
hard lessons I ensconce
lost in my insect dreams
being human, making sense
while I crawl along my leaf
blind to all the evidence
