POEM FROM A PARALLEL UNIVERSE

“In a scenario straight out of “The Twilight Zone,” a group of NASA scientists working on an experiment in Antarctica have detected evidence of a parallel universe — where the rules of physics are the opposite of our own, according to a report.” New York Post

backwards, forwards
this is
the logic
af antithesis
just another spin
on relativity

how we move
inexorably
from Honeymoon
Suite to

first, chaste kiss
ultimate purpose
of every relationship
being the
return of the children
to their
original fluids

same as
North, South
top, bottom
just a matter
of prejudice
an issue of convenience
who
gets prioritized
but it
could
be otherwise

my life running from
last moment
could be
a head-on, suicide,
natural causes

through to that
terrible moment of
extinction as
my mind
grows young
all that is
consciousness
surrendered to my
mother

and
culmination
of three act structure
where middle stays
middle
but the other two
revolve

Oh
how can their be tragedy
Macbeth, Hamlet, Lear
proportioned again
between
father and
mother

what superb anticlimax
to what started with
those bodies
on the stage

kick things off
with a
massive catharsis

and then
the gods and fates
no longer aggrieved
no longer
offended

we all
go peacefully

to that death that is
seed
which perhaps is
how it
should be

less
the anomaly
