Rob Schackne #28 - After A Lifetime Spurning Science

After A Lifetime Spurning Science

Maybe the penny drops a little
faster than the tar pitch drip,
70 years at the one experiment,
white coats, cigarettes, cameras
the viscosity has been vicious 

said a scientist (name withheld)
the tension killed many of us
meanwhile comes another one,
slower than ideal, slower than
the time it takes this all to fall
between two people, a lifetime
to drop that distance, how slow
it needs a moment to be formed,
the glance, the touch, the kiss,
tonight about this tar pitch.
