Quantum Squirrel


a squirrel not much bigger
than a bluebird
leaps from pole to pine like light

and

darts
down
its
trunk

I barely saw its moves

a quantum squirrel
a tear in time

squirrel, your
then and then
are past and future
combined
………………………….
you animate space
simultaneously elsewhere
……………………….. entangled
……………………….. out of time
……………………….. at the wall
……………………….. or the wisteria
before I’ve had a chance to blink
before I’ve had a chance to think
before I’ve had a chance to
change my mind
