I am my synaptic self
my synapses are me
they have the nerve
they make the connections
they are the “who” in me.

“You are your synapses. They are who you are.” Joseph LeDoux
This was a found poem written about our synapses and what this guy (who studied them) said about them. I just found it interesting that this chemical reaction makes us who we are.
They || always have the last say
they || said so
they || are experts in every field
they || have it better than you
they || have what you want
they || know it all
they || know when you are sleeping
they || know when you’re awake
they || have it all figured out
they || always know the right words
they || always win
they || told me to do it
they || make the rules
they || are reading this now.

It’s always about “they” but who, or what are they?
