desire comes from the gut

from the reptile brain

reason is a recent software upgrade

“all is change,” reason declares

“no, that can’t be true,” desire insists

working to turn reason upon itself

by mystery, longing, fear

but, in the end desire’s aim is never met

change comes and we go with it

reason must be strong

reason must win over desire

for why else are we human?
