The Brain.

Four pounds of worm-like meat-
a world. Each neural journey
inside skull, now jettisoned.

Uncrossing crossed legs
or winning a gamut of races-
the muscle teems with challenges.

Like a prize
from eons of evolution
the trophy is beating extinction.

Shiny, pulsing,
benign presence,
ultimately symbolic
of man's humanity
to man.
