1st Poem - an art work & poem
Ron: (sipping some wine) Spacey, huh?
Lis: You can almost feel a proto-human brain at work: core hardware without much programming.
Linda: Interesting how people liken their minds to computers.
Ron: (frowning a bit) I dunno. The art work looks like a sliced egg & poem seems puerile.
Lex: To me it suggests raw sensation without thought.
Ron: No poem is needed to experience that: six bottles of beer will do.
Linda: What we call 'abstract thinking' is like the surface of a road with many layers underneath . . . this work illustrates a few of those layers.
