What makes creatures curious?

Do you wonder why you wonder? What is
Behind that spark that sets chemicals
Adrift in your bean? What analysis
Did you imbibe from a polemical,
Academical biology book
About what makes we creatures curious?
Don’t be blinkered by the gobbledygook
Of correlates. You are a glorious
Fantastic creature unexplainable
By single synaptic gospels science
Illuminates. What is attainable:
To search for your spirit in defiance
Of mechanical explanations. Find
The soul behind the synapse. Treat it kind.
-Allegra Jordan, 2018.
