To cross spaces of untold distances is not
Impossible. Entanglement makes it so.
You are here; in fact, you never left.
The knotted space of us is around and under and through,
An atomic cascade of feeling, sensation, voice, memory.
We defy physics and rational thought,
Time’s arrow piercing and threading one to another,
The elements of us so deeply rooted that we can never exist without the other.
Two particles, pulling and pushing, finally connecting,
Reaching a space of an inseparable whole, attaining quantum entanglement.
