The brain skips 
the groove the train 
derails the record jumps 

the scratch. Sound is pressed
for memory to serve
the tracks to steer us

to attention.
A microscope
is full with focus

but not so much 
an eye which blinks 
the book the street 

the world a flickering 
designation. Present tense
is picket fence

mind a gap
agaping. Words are just
a gist a record

skips and jumps 
the groove a brain 
derails the track unkept.
