i think
	i think o’er much
and thought thought engenders
	til sense be subject
		to this neural breeding

i know 
	i know not what
yet knowing knowledge renders
	thoughts of thought and yet
		to thought unheeding

i feel 
	i feel a’right
though feelings feeling tenders
	and yet such feelings, too
		on thoughts are feeding

i am
	that what i am
feeling thoughts with no amenders
	for i am because of thought
		i feel i’m needing
