Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem looks at how humanity’s ability to search into space and scan the brain are developing at a fast pace.  Together, they are increasing our knowledge of the worlds beyond our vision in outer space and inner mind.  Here it is:

Space Brain Becoming Plain

looking upwards at night
we see dark mass and stars bright
telescopes reach beyond our eyes
showing wonders cloaked by skies

seeing out – looking in

new scientific inventions in psychology
scan behaviour from minds’ chemistry
where we only see sparks or oblivion
closed eyes inner vision
