The flower on stage
Representing a garden
Blossoms in the mind.

Later, dreaming, the mind
Catches the scent and restores
Every knotted tree.

And words well-spoken
Whisper in the clamor
Of later centuries,

Enduring, lingering,
And listening, as if
From eternity.


Original bio from the Fall 2008 edition:

Ben LaVergne has found it necessary to replace more and more of his brain with incredibly powerful microchips to facilitate his quest to know everything about everything.
