#NationalPoetryMonth Day 19: In A Flash

Today on Day 19 of National Poetry Month enter into the absurd and abstract…



In a Flash


Speeding particles, like a flash

Dip and dive, a thousand yard dash

spinning, winning, avoid the smash

Play the nucleus drumbeat clash,

universe mirror, through the glass

Entropy and chaos en masse


Sing light electric boogaloo

far down from where the cold wind blew

Ins and outs, cheer our plucky crew

often without a single clue

Empty streets wake the dead of night

lurking atoms and shadow’s sight


Speed and guile, to pierce the arrow

dark secrets dug since the marrow

Ages buried beneath the barrow

never stride the straight and narrow

Fragments patched, repeat ricochet

transitory flashes decay
