You of the Hasty Amygdala, Awaken!

Wake up the Prefrontal Cortex!

You, stewing in the ambiguous amygdala

with all it’s fire trucks

hoses and masks

it’s horse-drawn carriage of a bygone era

Wait just a little bit,

let the hippo send it through

let it rest in the PFC

before gut reactions

pump cortisol into the pistons

of your unified generator

that reads and writes your whole body’s nerves

and hinges on faulty wiring

from hasty firing
