Symmetry Breaking

we can’t be in love at once:
that’s a real quantum state
weird matter inwardness

no care if we know it or not
if we’re quantum physicists
or blind guides in despair

its exclusion principle works
no calculation needs
the world to arrange itself

we’re so anti-symmetric
though we would not say
wrapped, bones-framed

spans of fingers measure
convex curves of skin
on reticulates of veins

these are quantum jokes,
tears and dots, draining
estuaries of blood map genes

many quantum traps await us
between eyebrows and nose
kinds of singlet, doublet states

but no real pair of us remains
