kafka was a neuroscientist

The Butterfly Effect

his brain constantly inventing itself,
smiling with the splitting of cells,
division, multiplication all adding up
to a slightly different him
each morning he awoke

the before and after as subtle as
not knowing, then knowing

the taste of a pomegranate
the song of a distlefink
the nuance of a memory
