Stevens says ' the poem of the act of the mind' but how does the mind act? Is it the same thing as thought? Has anyone seen a mind working?

Rather, the working of a body that is thinking.

Inside and outside, not just, say, 'inner processes'. Not to turn from thinking but to think of thinking in another way.

Connections, from nerves to skin to others, and to stuff, things, world. Something like work, like labour.

And ee-mo-shuns (fee-eelings)? They are some work as well, in and of the body. Of the same work.
