The Physics of Love

An object needn't be large
to have great mass.

That girl, as tiny as a violet
That girl, drifting in the sky like petals of a flower
draws me to her with a force greater
than the one exerted by the earth.

In a single moment
I fell and rolled toward her without rhyme or reason
just as Newton's apple did.

With a thump.
With a thump-thump.
My heart bounced from the heavens to the earth in a dizzying pendular motion.

Such was the moment
I first fell in love.
