The impulses pass along in random sparks.
Axons to dendrites to axons,
Images roll through my mind.
A snap of his eyes glowing, looking upon me,
The way he flipped his hand while talking,
His gait, relaxed but determined,
Like one who has a goal and a plan to attain...
These neurons keep going,
Spreading the remembrances like cards,
Playing memory match
In the cerebrum of my brain.
These infinitesimal neurotransmitters,
Sending sparks through my organs,
The very wiring that keeps me alive,
Only seem to recollect him.
In the cerebellum,
The cortex,
The left and right hemispheres;
What kind of study would it take
To create a neural network
Dedicated to forgetting him?
