THE GUVíNOR

 

Somewhere in the brain

is the Co-ordinator

of mind and body --

this august person

commands the totality

of your processes.

 

His competence is

beyond estimation, out

of all assessment;

he knows what you think

before you think it; gives you

to feel what you feel.

 

Orchestrates heartbeat

breathing and blood pressure like

a three-ring circus.

Your high-noon darkness

is for him broad day; he is

more you than you are.

 

Consultant in doubt

companion in solitude

immortal parent

inward superself

co-regent with deity

and a loving friend.

 

Can we dialogue

with our Guvínors ? They hear us

but can we hear them ?

All the dreams we have

(their memoranda to us)

we too seldom read.
