Hard Floating World

The hippocampus travels westward.
The amygdala heads for points south.
The hypothalamus forever

Chases the ever-receding dawn.
The finest point to which a needle
Can be seen to point, so to define,

Owns some named neuroanatomy,
And if it doesn’t, it can get one.
This illustrates a point about names.

This points out pictured geography.
This names the way points can illustrate
The pointlessness of the quantum field.

Maps is maps, is what we’re painting here,
All of them sprung from a world of waves.
The waves on the maps are fictional,

Since a map can never catch a wave.
But the maps float on a field of real
Waves underwriting myths made of names.
