Found verse

(From the essay “Writers in the Storm,” by Kathryn Schulz in The New Yorker, Nov. 23, 2015, in a section about Alexandra Harris’s Weatherland)

…the association between minds
and clouds
from the cumulus shape
of the cartoon thought bubble

to the early Christian belief
that Adam’s mind
was made from
a pound of clouds

(which weighed
as much
as a pound
of lead)
