Worm’s-Eye View.

No, you fool.

You see: its all true,
yes, but utterly
irrelevant.

After all hope,
all that was has been lost,
I cannot betray you.

No lies.
Relax.

I know you just
don’t fucking get it.
Tried to tell them. 
Well, here it goes:

we are not
rational creatures.
We do not function
on that basis. Emotion

informs reason
in our case. We see
things through holes,

frames, screens
and tinted windows
on the various
sensory-specific doors
of our perception.

We can never
maintain a bird’s eye-view,
as we are recurrently
bound
by our meaty anchors,
drug down

from ultraviolet
through infrared till
we’re eye-level
with the worm.
