‘My long career / in explaining / my career.’
An exciton consists / of the escaped negative / (electron) / and the positive hole / it left behind.
‘It’s a simple truth that one can occupy two / places at one time while sitting in a chair—the same way a / poseable doll can be divided from her dress.’
‘This is my outfit. / Government spooks did the rest. Didn’t you know?’
‘Rain at three splits the bed in half, / cracks at windows like horsemen blistering / through a century of hibernation.’
