Random Poem:

Quantum Physics
Flog

"Live for the moment,"
 1
she hears.
 2
"Experience is calling"
 3
"Everything is waiting"
 4
she stumbles, mumbles, tumbles
 5
off the chair
 6
on herself
 7
on her words
 8
on that love that creeps-
 9
that is staying-
 10
"No, not fleeting."
 11
here.
 12
remaining.
 13
 
 
she lives, unknown,
 14
for "To survive on this gray breath
 15
surpasses the laws of stability," she knows.
 16
stuck, she sinks slightly to the left
 17
for her right arm is raised, asking
 18
"Excuse me, could you tell me..."
 19
nothing, she hopes.
 20
"Please tell me all about how..."
 21
i've (de)constructively created this
 22
conforming
 23
confirming
 24
confining
 25
yet, conducing
 26
cantilever?, she thinks to herself.
 27
 
 
"No, that is not it."
 28
oh, the one that is waning westward
 29
with my wanton, quantum physics?, she wonders again.
 30
"No, the answer is two."
 31
oh, like me and him?, she thinks
 32
yes, that must be it,yet
 33
"Is that all?"
 34
"Are you sure?" she questions again.
 35
(in fact,
 36
this is the thirty-second time
 37
she has asked.)
 38
 
 
"Are you sure I'm not supposed to get that other answer?" she questions, desperately
 39
"Cause you know, I understood that last one..."
 40
"No."
 41
"No?"
 42
oh.
 43
she slumps
 44
wondering when (soon she hopes)
 45
she will
 46
"Are you sure?"
 47
"Yes."
 48
get it right.
