outlier.

an entity
the categories
constructed of neurons
sixty chemical elements
the human form of
flesh and bone
cartilage and fluids

what they hope
with the astonishing
intellect comprised
of intricate
isometric equations
in carefully measured
formulas

among them all
she remains
the synonym of
protector, the
reckless bard
a strumpet, girl
