aHa: a poetic noetic instantiation in three acts
AlchemiA

rushing inference, imminent insight
 1
suddenly its clear, a gut feeling,
 2
          swooning, reeling,
 3
   cross-connected hemi-sphere;
 4
syncopated, reverberated, totally aware
 5
 
 
open bi-ways, ahh blue-sky days, making up my mind,
 6
synapses shiver, axons quiver, dendrites deliver,
 7
'lectrik-neurons fire suddenly in time
 8
 
 
aha! aha! oh gawd I see, I ran around 'n cried
 9
a fool I've been, all along it's there, right in front of me
 10
 
 
with a grin 'n a nod 'n twinkly-looking 'round
 11
raised my arms 'n slapped my thighs
 12
'n made a ruckus sound --
 13
 
 
donned my hat 'n set it skewed
 14
upon my big bright head,
 15
set off to town in an uplifted mood
 16
while whistling a sweet sound,
 17
forgot what I had found
 18
 
 
#
 19
 
 
there's a hole in my head
 20
    where the wounds of reason seep
 21
                all words are dead inside my head
 22
what's left is dark 'n deep
 23
 
 
@
 24
 
 
I'll always live
 25
        and always die
 26
          on the event horizon
 27
                     of my mind's eye
 28
                           where the flash
 29
                   of neuronal fires
 30
              flower into a
 31
          sudden epiphany --
 32

Separate : "in Three Acts," from the title; because, "in three acts" is a superlative - in sorts, of the act itself.  " Dendrites Deliver?"  rly?  Really good pace.  Love the pound.  The problem with pace is the execution in real time, you sort of fall into a classic rhythm, and changing the spacing isn't large enough to overcome the 19th century rhythmic patterns, your rhyming takes over your message.  Remember that the greatest writers in history where current.
