"Words realize nothing, vivify nothing, unless you have suffered
in your own person the thing which the words try to describe"

- Mark Twain.

never mind

never mind all of this crap
about the heart being a pump
about the lungs being a bellows
about the soul being neurons
with sparks or chemicals
about the moon in your head
never mind all of that
time is short
metaphors are tall
that weave together the
two worlds
of experience
and language
and one day science will agree
that the hummingbird
the pure nectar
in the center
of the chest

and all other gold
is fool's gold
