Someone Is Studying Einstein’s Brain by Miles Solstice

When the next great
will their emails
be packaged
                        and published
                        their motivation
                                                        for everything
they ever wrote
enlightening researchers
satisfying curious readers?

There’s more written down
        than ever
                        and none of it
is written down.
                            in the breeze.
            of grass
            a dandelion.

An albatross flies five
hundred miles
                              without flapping
                  pole to pole.
The price
                      of a one hundred
trillion dollar bill.

                                Have you ever
sat next to a
                                                until your shoes
began to melt?
                                And what
of the toes
                                in that case?
