Dark Matter Calculations

Dark Matter Calculations

A poem I wrote nearly three decades ago - Dark Matter Calculations.

sequences
numbers and equations
matters of awareness, lucid
trying to open some secret value
of understanding, expressing functions
with coefficients specific to the difference
dancing between ignorance and knowing
without remainder, absolute, mystic formulas
observing complexly with thoughtful contemplation
while quantum operators like equivalent chameleons
create and annihilate virtual arrays of exclamation
beautiful, scientific, tested
yet flawed, blemished, unbroken between the symmetries
trapped in cycles of infinity and substance
incomplete, unreckoned
then, a single simple apprehension neither light nor dark 
ever plunges beyond reduction
