The world is riffed with images
            of thoughts refined,
                                    Nat Adderley's cornet
            Branching Out
                        seeking its own style
                                    like a delta of distributaries
                                                from the Mississippi.

But Branching Out is old as the oaks
            themselves.  Barn Owls
                        hesitant to fledge
                                    secure tottering
                                                near the nest.

Branching Out explains the diagrams
            of science, the flow charts of business,
                        and the linkage of computer

thoughts crystalized in patterns
            that are more visual than linguistic
                        left brain cognition
                                    spawning right brain
