“ISLOLATED RANDOM FLICKERS”

is a first cause, Word

igneous, voxel lightning rod,

the quiver / shot from Cupid’s bow,

that rarest rare infant syndrome —

twitch switch itch tic —

the final Hope of 100 billion galaxies

(same as their first cause),

eternal on-off, off-on, on-off…

in the End is the Approximate

by Therese L. Broderick

(The title is a quote from Carl Zimmer’s article “100 Trillion Connections” in Scientific American, January 2011.)

  2. When you start being scientific, I have to look things up, like ‘voxel’ for one! (I live a sheltered life!)
