Sonnet of the Spooky Action at a Distance

Of course, Poeta, you have heard

the one about light as a particle

and a wave — how two photons

from the same wave function

remain entangled at a distance

like the outer edges of a ripple spreading

from a pebble thrown into a pond —

synchronous dancers leaping

to the same silent heartsong.

We were scientists with a secret

that we were writers with a secret

that we were scientists — heads

or tails, you and I flip our coins,

spooky action at a distance, as one.
