The Effects of Dark and Light
by Ruth Daigon 

Lovers have a hard time. They worry 
about energy, entropy, inertia. They suffer 
the tension of attraction and repulsion, 
of maintaining their own course and 
watching their mass and volume. They study 
the circle of influence, the invasion 
of diverse bodies, the effects of dark and light, 
and when their universe expands, they have 
no control over the imminent explosion.
