Stewart McKenzie Poems
Rtfm 08 Planck Verse
When poetic compression of meaning
Passes a quantum threshold
(The Blanck Length?)
The soundcolors and rhythms of words
Present alternative meanings.
Assonance and dissonance intervene.
Group memories resonate
Meaning becomes a matter of probability
Of parallel possibilities in multiple dimensions.
Ordinary rules of communication
Do not apply at this level of compression.
Timesong 02 Now Then
By the time that you hear me,
I spoke in your past.
When I hear your reply,
You in mine.
The image you see of me left me -
How long ago?
Not long, but a while,
Unless light brings the moment.
