Favorite Quote:
Love with open hands. - Madeleine L'Engle


I think the whole world exists on a number line
all between one and negative one.
That's as far as cosine will exist.
That's as far as the periodic table goes, too, with the first group's charge of +1 and the seventeenth's charge of -1,
except for the noble gases,
which I suppose then must be outside
the realm of provable fact.
Perhaps they are magic.
Hannah says, “What is magic
but a highly advanced science?”
And once in chemistry she said,
“I think God must be a wave.”
No one with as many thoughts as that
could exist between one and negative one.
And there are more like her.
They must bleed over into twos and fives and threes and eights,
into colors and noble gases,
into undefined.
Outside the realm of provable fact.
Out where God is.
Where the waves are.


The author's comments:
A wave is something that can be in more than one place, for those of you who haven't taken chemistry yet. :)
