Mycelium

The mushroom,

As it is known,

Is the tip of the fungal iceberg,

So to speak.

Beneath the fruiting body,

In the crux,

Is an interconnected,

Root and chute structure,

That undergirds,

The organism.

An unseen web,

Of white matter,

That provides a foundation.

A loose, scattered scaffold,

That aids the fungus in digestion.

In a superficially cerebral way,

Think of it like this:

The white matter,

In your brain,

Is a network,

Of axons,

That allows you to understand,

Various axioms,

And maxims,

And act on them.

You may not be aware of it,

Or scarcely know of such a thing,

But it’s presence is felt,

Nonetheless.

The Frey Effect

Standard

Hearing: The Sensation,

Occurs with vibration,

When the eardrum reverberates.

Microwave radiation,

In minute doses,

Bypasses bones,

No barriers broken.

Your brain buzzes,

Like the Chatty Cathy,

It actually is.

Don’t get brainfreeze,

Or your brain fried,

Or mind-tinnitus.

Loud clicks,

Zips,

And simple words,

Beamed into,

Your thoughts,

From the excited electrons,

Sparking in your audio cortex.
