Sometimes I wish to waft gently around
and sometimes I feel like darting rapidly about
and sometimes I want to be found
and sometimes I need to stay lost

             (The Heisenberg Game:
             someone you love gets sent to the hospital
             then to the nursing home
             then back to the hospital—
             find them)

You can’t always hide from yourself
even while
switching from wave to particle
and back again
as easily and swiftly
as a Super Hero

             You can lead
             me to water
             but you’ll never know
             how I got there
