The Physics of Love
by Kate Thornton
There's no one whom I more adore
Than Heisenberg and Neils Bohr
Involved with both with all my heart
At least the sub atomic part
Hurtling with Stark affection
To love's uncertain swift direction
What is my speed? Where is my space?
Timeless in an unknown place
The Principle ignites the spark
Of passion pion muon quark
These particles in ardor that
need no one's Constant, no one's Cat
But only the assurance of
Uncertainty in work and love.
