Perhaps Entangled

By Chris Palmer

He felt her after she passed,

Sixty-nine years together.

Time connects souls,

Unless they always were.

Physicists talk of Entanglement,

Subatomic particles separated;

Yet both react,

Connected still.

You can separate parts,

But never the whole.

At least not all of it.

There’s connection.

Scientists say that.

Faith says that.

Love says that.

Now I do too.

His tears turn to calm.

She is still here.

In part,

Perhaps Entangled.
