CHRIST IN WINTER: Reflections on Faith & Life for the Years of Winter -- ALL USED UP

My last brain cell has been used up
The neurons, the synapses, all gone
Even the campus where hippos went to school
Nothing left but a worn and broken Frisbee
They used to toss around with cookies after supper

No great loss, really
Those cells never worked well
They were more like jail cells than brain cells
Each one trying to talk to others
By tapping secret code on the walls

Still, I sort of miss them, sometimes
When I’m sitting in the morning, sipping in the morning,
Wondering what those winged and singing
Creatures are called, or why they are there at all
I think the cells, or maybe it was the ganglia,
Used to know that sort of thing
