Brain in Suspended Animation

somewhere-somehow these connections
links, nodes, interchanges make plastics
of spaces and valleys and walls and roads

ridges bathing in sheens of liquid that is
not blood, not that solution for oxygen,
such a leap from desiccated heirlooms

waiting-blind, waiting-deaf, waiting-waiting
bespoke holdall, chemically locked diary
How do you feel detached from a heartbeat?
