like a pearl
of salty roe, foreign.
My tongue tests
the boundaries of memory, posing
in postures of simulation.  It does not
understand banalities:  external
cost, the pressure of perceived
prestige.  Its instincts more base,
blindly balancing.  In an instant,
knowing the correct process
to proceed.  Automatically purging or
savoring.  An intuition
from the forced act of swallowing
