Notes from a Sequestration


I’m sitting at the breakfast table  
with my functional MRI cap on
listening to Car Talk  
on the radio, 
Tom and Ray  
are laughing, 
one of them has died, 
this is The Best of Car Talk, 
after all, 
and I wonder  
if important parts  
of my brain  

are lighting up, 
we are so hungry  
for connection.
