Inner Worlds and Anomalies   poem  
Creators: Ellen Million (Writer), Edward Cammarota (Patron)

Some Purists believe in 'inner worlds';
Souls, or spirits, or energy centers.

Scientists, as a rule, reject such things,
Preferring objects that can be measured,
Body parts that can be weighed:
Blood in graduated vials
And organs on silver trays.

They cannot fathom a world within,
And leave such fancy to the artists,
Letting word-spinners and zealots explore them,
While they stick to numbers.

The rare Scientist who considers them,
Does so quietly,
And doesn't mention anomalies in the same sentence...
