Physics

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive
 

I read in the New York Times

about the possibility

of multiple universes

 

Such theories the article

notes require a deep understanding

of advanced mathematics

far beyond what I

could ever possibly muster

 

I take the physicists

at their word

 

But if true

I recognize that there

might be a universe

in which you and I

never met

 

and another universe

in which we met

but did not fall in love

 

and another where we met

and fell in love

but that love did

not take hold

 

I have no interest in such places

 

What I know for certain

is that in the universe

in which I write these words,

we did meet and we did

fall in love

and then you died

 

And now, I think only

of the universe in which

you and I sit

on your sofa and

I casually mention

the article I’ve just read

about multiple universes

 

And you smile back

and say how good it is

to know that.

As graceful as a fine dance in its flow

Thank you. It's very kind of you. I don't know that I was thinking about flow. I just knew where I wanted to start and end and the rest just sort of came together after a while.
