Spooky Action



We are stardust
You are beautiful atoms
put together

We share
spacial proximity
we are entangled

We were destined
to meet regardless
of time or place

We have been
bound together
Since the Big Bang

A change in you
is instantaneously
felt by me

If you go left
I would
light years away
tilt to the right

Einstein called it
spooky action
at a distance

Spin
and I’ll
counter spin

Nothing is forever
Except atoms
and love

Our bodies are
only atoms wrapped
inside a sunbeam

you are all
wave particles
when I close my eyes

We are bound up
roped and swaddled
in space time

My atoms love yours
it’s biochemistry
I’m a poet and an ion
looking to join with your soul

We love in quantum passion
we discovered the subatomic
eternity is this moment

Brown nipples dimpling
our bodies float
in small solar winds

We make love with
each molecule of desire
we are

Inextricably
inexplicably
