Quanta

To you
I dedicate the language
of quantum mechanics:
the placelessness of electrons,
how they are either/or but not between.

Yours
are effects that precede causes,
spooky action at a distance,
a furious bubbling into and
out of existence.

To you
I dedicate Newton’s still-moving heart,
the antique, inadequate design.
With love, to all the yous
I’ve discovered.
