I sometimes wonder at what I’d be

With an education

But is that the right thing to wonder?

Maybe my brain isn’t as good

I mean, imagine the brain that comprehends neuroscience

So what am I for?

If my mind is comparatively a child’s

Or an ape’s

What role does the world wish…

For normal?

Distant cry in the street

It isn’t clear, but she hears

“Get a bank, you freedom loving hippie!”

Looking astounded, “like, a, huh?”

She ponders the message

Beneath the lights of Times Square

Most people here just do chores

Whattye do there? soft hands

“I ponder reality from limbo”

Sounds stupid

“Yeah, I never was that bright”
