Mythos

By JP Dancing Bear

 

A circle inherits a spiral;

The name Fractal is given

 

To a child. A cat curls into his

Cradled arms, and responds

 

Only to Schrödinger.

 

Tightly in the gut of both

Dust swirls into the small

 

Arms of galaxies. It is

A November twilight

 

And already the stars

Are prepared.
