Quantum physics dictates that
Looked at directly matter will disappear.
Big physics says that electrons can be bound,
Unified theory does not allow multiple existences.
These are matters of the heart;
Sometimes looking at love directly can destroy it,
And we don’t want lovers disappearing,
To burnt, brawny, Ulaanbaatar without us, we
Want them flourishing and,
No matter how ribald, how
Cherished they are, at times a
Gaze averted can fertilize love,
Parry an argument,
Can better the road ahead.
Dew off fingertips,
May glisten brightest,
When not looked at directly.
Not everyone is free.
