Certainly Impure This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Understand how hallucinations are generated outside of the laboratory.
Understand that a loop is in control,
yet characterized
by imaginings of ghosts, noises, visions,
and forewarnings.
Understand the particular set of points,
in this two-
dimensional space that produces learning.
Understand the nonmaterial stuff lost
when the retina is removed.

Understand that naiveté and idealism are perfect targets
for the increasing need to experiment with
electricity.
Understand the momentary transient effect caused by random coils
and easily broken attachments, and that
these are another way to stabilize
(another way to give rise to) equilibrium
(an electric field.)

Understand the wife of the missing
Arctic explorer.
Understand that she preached mightily,
and not as the scribes.
Understand that the private letters clearly
reveal his conviction.

Understand that water
is even more important than Earth's
early history,
the indispensable matrix between sleep
and waking, and that life is only
projections of the prose.
Understand that the biological scheme
of things
is a simple mistaken condition of the mind,
while a contentious “Rosy” is the midst
of a larger revolution
(and our last option).
