Poesy plus Polemics

land and sea
warm and cool
in their time
in their place
without me
or with me
no matter
my powers
have paltry
affect upon
cycles writ
deep in the
arcane language
of chaos
on scrolls
of creation


I huff and I puff
paper boats
on a pond
destinations
a function
of entropy


diathermy escapes
greenhouse
boundaries
trading forces
with quantum
realms seeking
equations of state
casting changes
of temperature
pressure and
motion with
palpably human
intellectual
volume in short
discreet manifest
brain-sized
understanding
