The new look of intellectual

no one speaks of my new face
i painted my nose blue
i added more hair to my eyebrows

i thought i would look more intellectual if
my brain could be seen by all
so i found a man (Dr Chan) who replaced my forehead
with a transparent window to my neocortex

he told me 'the look' is catching on in Paris and Tokyo.
they're speaking about my face there
soon everyone will want this

soon beauty will be all about the brain

  1. Ha ha! This is great. I hope to one day read a story about the brilliant dr. Chan

  2. I do have a story about the doctor, but better still, are words from the man himself. Dr Chan enjoys writing stories, mainly about his patients, so unfortunately he's obligated not share.

    Perhaps I can be an omnipresent voice though...
