QUANTUM CAT NAP
(For August's Birthday)
Tonight when we're in the mood to explore
I'd like to superpose my body with yours:
Aligning both our buzzing possibility waves
Till each cell of mine's
In tight quantum connection
With each cell of thine.
Our hearts aligned, our pulses
Our lungs aligned, our breathings
Our brainwaves, pelvic twitches
Each capillary's motion
Completely in sync.
I'd like to merge with you fully, love,
In a way no other man has ever imagined.
Let's experience quantum entanglement
Warm and first-handedly
Not like equation in a book.
Let's both deeply feel
Naked quantum superposition
Of head, shoulder, knees and toes
Fingers, pelvis, both elbows.
Which part is me and which is not?
Neither one of us on top.
Then when we've learned what we can
From our first playful superposition
Let's fall asleep inside one another
Going to sleep me added to you.
Could both of us then experience
The world's first two-person dream?
Then waking up together
From our first quantum Cat Nap
Slowly breaking the superposition
Experiencing our mutual possibilities
Gently re-scrambling themselves
Like tangled bed clothing.
Alone now in my bed
I recall what I've read
About non-locality of the quantum kind:
No space between us, no time
So the physicists say.
So for billions of years, dear,
We've slept together this way.
