Mind

Your MIND
is not you
but of you
by design
it does four things well

Keeps you safe
mostly
frequently
bindingly

Stores memories

obtusely

Retrieval

Processes information
with or without
discernment

And Chatters

moronically
morosely
frivolously
loudly
insanely

with enlightenment
with breathing
with drugs
with nutrition
with seminars
with fashion
with wealth
with sex

with love
with things
with travel
