Overwhelmingly Physiological

Did you know that falling down
And flying in your dreams
Could just be rehearsals
Instead of causing screams?

Did you know that substance P
Causes lots of pain?
But did you know the PAG
Causes less of it to strain?

Did you know that in slow wave sleep
Sometimes you can walk and talk?
Or that if you’re blind but your eyes are fine
You can navigate a room like a hawk?

Did you know that this girl has
Thousands of facts to learn at home
And could only think of these
When writing up this poem?
