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

Haven’t you heard?

Hearing, the sensation

requires some good vibration,

to get the eardrums

moving.

Microwave radiation,

in the tiniest doses,

bypasses bones

no barriers broken.

Your brain buzzes

like the Chatty Cathy,

it actually is –

even if you’re at a loss for words.

The electrons in

your audio cortex

are eager to broadcast

for me,

but only get so far.

It’s easy to gossip,

when the whispers

are beamed directly into

your thoughts.

Can we say, then,

that we are of the same mind?
