Functional Neuroanatomy

You are this looking at this,
Thinking of this as you
Looking back at yourself as this.

Welcome to the shifting landscape 
Of a brain, which you believe,
With some confidence, however abstracted,

Might as well be yours. Lovely
Clay or plastic, digitized or 3D
Printed for your tactile perusal,

This model of your human brain
Or, even better, this image made
Inside a humming tube of you

Yourself, thinking thoughts,
Having subconscious urges
Brightly colored for contrast.

Holy cats, that very thought
Can be, and is here, recreated 
To a crude approximation

From this mug shot of your self-
Absorbed, fragmented, physical,
Long-gone and undersold soul.
