future stimuli

we build fires when we’re cold, right?
reaction.
stimulus and response
eating when we’re hungry,
seeking others when we’re lonely;
simple.
natural.
But there are other stimuli, right?
things beyond nature,
things undiscovered but imaginable;
smoke clouding the starlight, but
dispersing a little every day;
and perhaps when we find the right combination of stimuli,
the perfect terror
the perfect bliss,
perhaps, finally,
we will seek peace.
