Cognitive Road

History may not have an arc
but the head seems to rule further than
in the past over the hand and the
long-forgotten heart - in spite of what
songs claim and rage tempts
and in spite of all that has been
learned about what a head is and might
be, there is not to be a balance 
as that word might have been
wished for, it's no law of nature
human or otherwise -  and as we know 
the law and words are fictions, but as 
they are fictions within the system we
do not escape or destroy by retreat or
war, don't burn your dictionary
and pave your attention
discriminately and indiscriminately.
