Gettysburg

Gettysburg battlefield

A foggy, cold, November morning. Lincoln spoke,

following a 2-hour oratory with two minutes

because he knew “we can not dedicate —

we cannot consecrate — we cannot hallow” ground

covered, uncovered by grass and snow. Remembered.

 

Entanglement

Though we are now very far apart,

I feel connected to you again like

Einstein’s “spooky action at a distance” but

I have no scientific explanation for it –

no fear of the darkness of ghosts.
