Note: This piece was built upon a poetry form called an Acrostic which is a poem or other form of writing in which the first letter, syllable or word of each line, paragraph or other recurring feature in the text spells out a word or a message. In this case each first letter of each first word of each line is a letter in spelling the phrase, Entanglement Theory.

Entanglement Theory:

If two particles are “entangled”, so quantum mechanics says, any tinkering with one can cause an instantaneous change in the other, no matter how separated they are.

Empty, some might say, but look again

Now what do you think? Sharp appearance wrestling a head full of sharp sounds

Tick, tock, tick, tock in a web of noise

And who is she?

Naked but utterly private

Greeting day and night separately, yet knowing they’re entangled

Leveraging dawn for a draught of string theory

Everything is inside, until it’s gone

Music becomes the filaments of a spider’s web

Exacting, like a skein of wool, red rivers that flow.

Needing nothing but the hectic symphony of thoughts

Trapped is only one way to explain a violin caught inside its scratches
