an old poem

great reading w Alyssa Harley & Claire Olivia Moed tonight
Claire Olivia Moed reminded me about the first time I read at the WOW Cafe…poem in the series on Albert Einstein, written while in a poetry workshop w Maureen Owen…i read it forward and then backwards…here it is:

flip a coin
any coin
heads or tails
record
velocity
mass
moment of inertia
all other relevant factors
still no answer
it is the law of probability
with all facts in
it’s still 50/50
and god plays dice with the universe
place your bets ladies and gentlemen
let them roll
little joe
luck be a lady tonight

luck be a lady tonight
little joe
let them roll
place your bets ladies and gentlemen
and god plays dice with the universe
it’s still 50/50
with all the facts in
it is the law of probability
still no answer
all other relevant factors
moment of inertia
mass
velocity
record
heads or tails
any coin
flip a coin
