through cracks in the pavement 

Listen closely

you will hear

a majestic noise

beckons near,

resounding sanctum when

the coast is clear.

Beneath a pall

of nothingness,

assumes the mantle of sorrow,

that with apparent paradox

each cerebral cortex

was made of just grey matter.
 An acoustic scattering
of words

slowly subsides

beneath the

isostatic press, 

a crimson flush.


The cerebral cortex is the most important part of our brain (at least in the field of psychology) because it is what makes us human. The cerebral cortex (sometimes referred to as called “gray matter”, is actually densely packed neurons.
