Jason Gray


The pinecone opened to the heat 

And fell. How it now looks 

As if a propeller’s entire motion, all 

Its probabilities are shown at once. 


The carpenter calls it genius. 

Let us set our craft down 

Into a basket of multiverses 

As my mother did 

And know the thing we can be no better than.
