from Stephanie Strickland's Dragon Logic:
instructions map a metaphor or more
to computational processes ( not
twiddle ( de dee ) tweak ( de dum )
execute / run repeat
till well ( enough )

THE SAME interaction the same charge and enormous
speed my brother Finnº my virtual my transient
twin seething with energy some
or none or any at all
except that one
number that makes me
real and not

loader the thief exuberant slid in under the bell
ºFinn quantum particles ( the constituents of existence ) have twin particles located
elsewhere; I have personified a companion virtual twin as Finn

Are you kidding? Quarks, too, can choose?
Conway and Kochen, old dragons, well
vetted, claim — no — prove, if given a free hand to choose
their gear direction while quizzing quarks with questions,
taking their measure, then, too, whim-
driven & not determined, a particle's response. To be
precise — the universe's response near the particle un-
determined by the Whole prior history of World Time & Space.
In fairness, it's the theory's 'strong'
( min, spin, twin ) form — could they claim more?
Imagine haranguing electrons,
just say no —
Imagine addressing zoomers sans apparatus. Up and at it,
again, are you, pairs of them grumble, maybe even hiss;
gauging us, too, in their stinging way.
