Neanderthal Messiah — 198
Princeton, NJ | 1950
[His smiling secretary greets him:] ‘Wonderful news!
It looks like a wedding invitation, Doktor, wax sealed! E?’
[She hands him the envelope.]
[Excitedly:] ‘It’s post-marked Bs. As.! Where’s that?’
[Einstein walks with it into his office:] ‘The Ratline.’
Vows are like =
Men are space
Women are rhythm
Love is gravity.
Toiling trouble which lays in laws
More strange than e-Intelligence doubling.
Within a century your calculations predict
This union of unequals will cleave.
Attraction, bonds, Physics lost
A pair of dice tossed
Algorithm parents life-like
Approval sought by children of it.
And your philosophy of Relativity
Touring a red planet with a Time that fails
Women disconnected from lunar phase
Men shun the sun’s work.
Reading — into this time next century with
Crisper evolution visibility
For fellows who make life now to zero counts
Then In Vitro screening wiggles clawed.
Women’s love trap switch left behind
And the long past Church’s nave’ll grow fallow
While Men are no longer tempted to worship
In your aftermath, The Age of Multiple Singularities.’
