In the morning I awake,
The first stimuli of the day
flow into my head
Like light into a dark, void chamber.
The gears that reside in and operate my brain
begin turning, turning, turning.
I grease them with eggs and toast
as they begin warming up,
and continue spinning, spinning, spinning.
The whirs of my thoughts become fully perceptible
I can remember where I left off yesterday.
Video receptors connected to the occipital lobe of the machine
look for any last-second homework as two hands rummage through
A wonderland of papers and folders.
After a moment, the gears generate their first answer.
The pencil meets the paper
It's the Wilmot Proviso, of course!
Responses spit out sporadically.
The gears operate at full speed,
Turning, turning, turning,
And the machine is ready for another day.
