A Poem Reprinted from The Rutherford Red Wheel Barrow 4

Relativity,” M. C. Escher, 1953,  lithograph, 27.7 × 29.2 cm

By Roxanne Hoffman
The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.
—Albert Einstein

would mean no waiting
no anticipation

never EVER being late
nor early
nor on time

just existing in the moment
always PRESENT
future and past, spun on a dime.

no cause and no effect
no unfolding story to foretell or to retrospect.

if we’re born and we die INSTANTANEOUS
have we even existed at all?
or if we lead schizoid lives, two-faced like Janus,
does polygamy become protocol?

Or are we merely chaste immortals?

FOREVER wandering the door-locked halls…
