Brain Sulcus

It seems to be a substance
Penetrate into my body
Bit by bit.
I cannot really
Observe and experience it
It can only be detected in
Me more and more excited action
It makes me
Cannot give up
Very ravine
I began to re-examine
Then something seemed to slow down
Cut open the cerebral cortex
Provoke nerve fibers
Stir the brain
Suddenly rotten memories came out
As if a pool of
Green stagnant pond
Grunt to defend
Cover up each other’s
Disguise
The brain is a fabulous and miraculous organism
Does mind control the brain
Or the other way around.
One’s spirit comes from the conscience
The conscience comes from the brain.
