The Higgs Boson Is Our Only Good Vibration
by Allison Leigh
Sure, we're impatient for the good
new vibes of tomorrow. We have time
but the clock ticks like spiders creeping
toward an amoral prison, our only fault
our one known life, our only life what
we elicit laboriously from frozen memory.
Not being in the best circumstance for this
kind of disaster only leads us to believe
we are better, we are brighter. Only we are
the bad vibes, the manic vibes
making the worst designs, and space is
not a blanket but a wishing well, and everything else
being what it is: what we will never be.
