String Theory

Bendable things
(Bouncy strings)
And reality is bendable too
In two dimensions
Or three
Or ten
You can’t guess when
Things will tie together
And hold themselves down
For one damned second

Because time
(All of the time)
Probably isn’t real
Though I feel
Time’s decay
You can’t guess why
Things ever die
They let go and spring
Free from what held them

Alternate universes
(Insert your own verses)
Make their own music
In the spheres
And go “boing”
You can’t guess how
But they wiggle
Don’t you dare giggle
They dance on the string
We high-wire-walk on
