we are quantum


There is no lab equipped to solve the fissures of our absence

nor discover the forces our fusion unleash

indescribable. unfathomable.

This is where the laws of the universe spoil.

Where physics dissolve in the erosion of time.

Where logic unravels.

I move towards you with hope and expectation and sweaty palms.

Each mile brings me closer to sharing your breath.

I want to plummet into you.

You are music

And I ache to sing your notes

Yet, there they are, splashed onto my own canvass.

There is another hand drawing the world in me.

The theory of you is the theory of me is the theory of us

To understand us, we must rewrite the universe and its small sciences

If we are quantum, understanding is dangerous

Maybe we should not pursue understanding

Maybe we should simply immerse in the ocean that is our waters

Maybe we always have
