About The Human Head


I am not certain
About the human head
It seems expressive enough
It seems to contain
Some sort of sentience,
At least some kind of nerve-fired
Responsiveness
But I am not altogether certain
About the human head
Dennett says it is not
Conscious
That nothing is conscious
There is only process
And no coherent self
I am not certain
About Dennett
And I am not at all certain
About the human head
Detached from the neck
I fear it will rot
All too soon
Rust this pike
And stink up this public square
But it is intended as a warning
And the dissenters must be shown
I am still very uncertain
About the human head
Its hatred for its fellows
Its impenetrability
To reason
I think about the Guillotine
I think about how you must lose
Your head
To be free
I think about all that the head
Is
Thinkpiece
Faceplace
Talkzone
Sensedome
Eatmouth
Kisslips
And I am still not certain

About the human head
