Einstein’s theories of relativity
upending the way we view time.
Past – present – future but an illusion.
Time & space woven together
forming a four-dimensional fabric.
Space-time, Einstein called it.
Quantum entanglement defies physics.
Separate entangled photons
& they remain connected
mimicking the behavior of the other
at the same time.
Spooky action at a distance, Einstein called it.
What of Man made from stardust
of atoms & entangled photons
existing in space-time
mindless of his cosmic entanglement
and shared fate?
Misogyny – racism – xenophobia
expand space-time between photons
disrupting their entanglement.
Same but separate
yearning and friction without end.
rising from the detritus of war
splits the atom
unleashing humanity’s Doomsday Machine
citadel of the gods
of Christians – Jews – Muslims
trapped in space-time
where past – present – future are one.
In space-time warped by Man
world peace is impossible.
Man of Earth
how do you undo
what can’t be disentangled?
