“about the universe and infinity…”

Updated on July 24, 2011

Noelle Chandler

Our bodies are maps,

but you won’t find L.A.

in the genes.

Escher’s Atlas,

the most logical paradox.

La réalité est l’illusion la plus persistante.

I’d like to think

my hair can be described

with more than four letters,

but we are not that creative.

Not even Einstein

could hide his sources completely.

We are reasonably sure

the universe won’t collapse

under the weight

of our own morbid curiosity.

We are uncertain

what is it we’re standing on,

but we are afraid to look back.

Science has a bloodier past

than Kali.

Religion without Science may be blind,

but Cassandra would tell you

that Sight is overrated.

La vue manqué l’inspiration.

But I digress.

Life is like an onion,

or maybe that was Earth.

Either way, there’s more to it

than a few pieces of protein.

Gravitation is not responsible

for people falling in love.

I’m not sure what is,

but it has to do with hate,

and maybe a bit of dirt.

Nothing is fair about magnetism.

There’s something to be said

about the universe and infinity.

Our slate is not as blank

as we’ve been led to believe,

but neither Nature or Nurture

can account for stupidity.

Whatever it is,

we will never be perfect

until they can incorporate

those last 22 letters

into our DNA.

      Very nice and intrusive in the decay of the misled by dragging out the soul's truth and combating the lie accordingly.

      Nice job.
