id been carving

 

pieces

 

off my little

 

sliver of light

 

compelled to it

 

because it made me feel

 

that divine

 

spark been shining

 

on youcrazy

 

across the ether

 

that’s why I’d come

 

to believe in

 

conservation

 

i could almost sense it

 

near that ... great equilibrium

 

the atomic stopwatch strikes

 

nil then darkness falls

 

the final curtain

 

for a life spent

 

in the spotlight

 

 

 

you said sharing

 

songs is not like

 

splitting atoms

 

which gives off heat and lights

 

from protons, to photons to quarks

 

til the building blocks of life

 

get down to strings

 

it’s just a theory you

 

know sooner or later

 

you end up with an

 

undivisible remainder

 

all attainable

 

energy spent

 

how many

 

dimensions

 

must we postulate

 

and in the end

 

end up with

 

too little too

 

late

 

 

 

you showed me something

 

i hadn’t seen coming

 

the energy that binds

 

greater than the sum of molecular parts

 

like the heart

 

of a star

 

when two become

 

one and something

 

new is

 

born

 

mass is lost

 

a proton here a neutron

 

there it’s true yet

 

the solar furnace pays

 

with interest

 

what was lost

 

 

 

quite a pair then

 

me with my lithium

 

core and

 

you and your solar

 

cell a

 

difference in

 

kind i thought no

 

longer alone

 

good galileo grant

 

faith to trust worlds

 

yet unseen courage

 

to invest in futures

 

unexpected
