Poetry by Jeff Green

In a billion tiny pieces of a million shattered minds,
There are visions unobstructed by convention’s rigid blinds.
There are truths you can’t discover without setting off to see,
Don’t be fooled by fools who prattle, let the answers set you free.

In the subtleties of chaos hide attractors of the strange;
In the mysteries of science are the blocks we must arrange.
Are there superstrings vibrating or just ripples in a brane?
We have lost the easy answers and must search for truth again.

What is mass and does it matter that the dark outweighs the light?
Can we find a law allowing human hyperphotic flight?
Maybe time’s a wing-ed arrow a dimension held apart
And an Einstein or a Hawking can find where we ought to start.

Do not let the mystics tell you that entanglement applies,
To the nonsenses they pedal that are just a pack of lies
But just maybe there are answers that can penetrate the blinds,
In a billion tiny pieces of a million shattered minds.
