Cognitive Algebra

Look Again

the modern world is in fast-pace,
where people assess on appearance -

within a blink of an eye comes
their little mental sums;

of first impressions:

it's a crazy cognitive algebra,
to take ten seconds, or

a tenth of one, to box-sort

on the curve of a nose,
or eyes too close,

or brows in a one-line
defiant design,

to work out how much
they're worth of your time.
