Einstein's Pen

Everything should be made
As simple as possible
But not simpler

Scribbles on pages
At 3 in the morning
Tubes and bubbling vials
Of wasted ink
5 warm sausages
Shaking in catastrophic harmony

Rolling Princeton cheeks
Tattered piles of studious 20-year-olds
Flailing and falling and failing
To remain racing
Sprinting with the scratch of my identity
Smushed against a sheet
Of coffee-stained paper

I am jostled like a pinball
Scoring the correct scarlet points
Luck belongs to the weak

Blue ink, black ink
Spattered across walls
Neon modern art
A futuristic warning

Imagination is
More important than knowledge
