“THE EARTH keeps some vibration going / There in your heart, and that is you.”

(“THE EARTH keeps some vibration going
There in your heart, and that is you.”)

~~~
astronomical ears
for heavenly spheres 
the æther rippling around us:

after all these years
we finally hear
the musica universalis
~~~

poem to 
gravitational waves
(in 140 characters or less)

[unused stanzas]

Null Result compelled
the Pythagorean cult dispelled
Yet space still felt folded around us

Given enough space and time
Adequate measure and rhyme
Science, hard thunk,
Becomes 
The magic it debunks.
