After the Relativity Quiz

we've twisted time and space for two weeks
I think
light insists we adapt or
live in ignorance, darkness
twins age differently
meter sticks contract
mass and energy swell
towards a limit no
one really understands

students swallow it all slowly
in their own relative way, like
a strange, new physics sandwich

after the quiz we pervert
physical fundamentals our own way
what if? I travel on a beam of light
friction decreases globally
gases are heavier than liquids
Newton’s 3rd Law is reversed?
If mass increases with velocity
men and women can’t connect
in love – the act, the attraction
is negated by the pursuit for
mass, men want to look muscular
women want to look thin
raucous laughter of minds bending
with the refracted
light of ideas
bell rings
