         It wasn't always true

            But now there is much new

            Under the sun.  With each

            Generation variables

            Cause some of us to dream

            Loud enough to drown out

 

            Normal means of thinking

            And speak to each other

            In a language we fail

            To understand.  No wonder

            We drink or fly from

            Frustration to drugs.

            We can't recall all

 

            Of whatever is ripping

            Itself out through our eyes,

            Broached with our fingers.  

            You say Nature will select us out

            Of existence, but we know

            How to think around corners

            Clear through solid walls.
