A Somewhat Parenthetical Sonnet

Where did humans get the idea of
Thresholds, anyway? The savannah has
No such borders. You cannot really shove
Someone out of the shade, as much as
You can through a door. Sociology
(Which is the science of crowds) says nothing
About thresholds. Also, the knowledge he
(it's always he), Freud, or Jung, or Tulving,
Provides says so much about the effect
But nothing about the cause. You forget
What you were doing, stand in still neglect,
An action interrupted. And as yet
There's nothing there at all. One's mind goes blank.
It's somewhat liberating, to be frank.
