    He tried hard enough
    To make me grab my A4 wood
    And for a moment, gazed at the blank spaces
    Thought and scrutinized
    If it was worth it, or otherwise

    For all I really wanted
    An end to the mouth work
    And a beginning of the ear vibrations
    The nodding, sighing
    And most of all, the understanding

    All I ever wanted
    A different atomic structure
    Another chemical formula
    A new bond formation
    No matter what it takes

    So, all I wanted was a moment
    To reflect may be read
    Into the vocal chords
    From the grey matter, down the spinal cord
    Probing, for a better amplification

    So deep I could see the nerves
    One by one, tap the axon
    Surge in the dendrites
    Freely and swiftly, yet vigilantly
    Not to plunge the impulse

    And so I set out
    With my frontal lobe, I had a plan
    My atrial node, fully aggravated
    For I knew I wanted it more than anything
    Until he…

    He clogged my path, restricted my plan
    And came up with a ‘‘mindpiece''
    ‘‘Giving it all up'' and what for?
    To be human
    To have a fragile heart and a dawdling brain

    My mind stopped and my heart decelerated
    In negation
    ‘‘Retaliation''. Nay! Wouldn't call it that
    So I sat him down
    And asked of him but one thing, ‘‘Notes taking''

    And he thought he had seen it all
    The adrenalin rush
    The acrobatic spin
    And the best of all…the alarm!
    I had just smiled…
