metaphysique palimpsest (found 2008 poem revisited)

 

The mind, & in the mind — thoughts

Thoughts objects, all too oft formed of words
The higher mind: complex upon complex
Of process geared for survival, toothed wheel w/in wheels

Cognitive cogs

Prefers a wound, relaxed engagement
Or, at any given synaptic impasse,  just waiting: a ready stillness
I identify thought-objects by form and cherry-pick them
Entertaining only thoughts productive
Toward simple goals of well-being
Of providing for and of enjoying life
Yes
Permitting only select, choice mental constructs
To manifest in the mental calm
