Chaos In Corpus Callosum


my corpus callosum
has a big lesion

that silences signal.
boosting noise

it's natural to feel
outraged and enraged


psychotic with paranoia.


so, as a precaution
against an overdose

of irritation
i'm swallowing medication

and it seems to help
stabilize the situation

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The video is about a pastime of mine, Lumosity.com brain training games. Lumosity is a membership site administered by leading neuroscientific researchers who have proven the theory of brain cell 'neuroplasticity.' Neuroplasticity basically means that brain cells function is regenerative at any age. Brain Profile Index [BPI] is a comparative measure between members of approximately the same age group which, in my case, is generally referred to as 'old man.' Given the topic of the poem and the notes, I think you can see the relationship of the poem to the video. If you are reading this and would like to contact me about Lumosity, please email doug@dougbentley.com. [PS: At the time of the video, my best game is Penguin Pursuit - BPI 1699, Level 26.]
