Another Way To Say - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Calling a 'title' (like 'king')an 'addition',
like Shakespeare did,
makes one think (me at least)
of calling 'gravity' 'attraction'.

Time and distance are large enough
to accommodate an explosion
and for the nearby to clean it up
(with mop and broom or attraction) .

Topic(s) of this poem: attraction, cosmology, language, violence
