Having Tea With Einstein
We were having tea
When you noticed the equation tattoo
on my forearm: E=mc2
You smiled but didn’t let on.
Pausing, you asked what equation
I was currently working on.
I couldn’t believe, you, were asking me.
Summoning my courage I said
It had something to do with the big E
in the equation that equals energy.
My equation asks clumsily about healing:
How Intention can exert itself upon Energy
to transfer or convert it into Mass.
For example by witnessing suffering,
combined with intention might we
convert it to something else, or move it?
You told me to go on.
I said I wanted to know
How we could move suffering
from the quantum field into an inanimate
object like, a canvas for example.
I wanted to know if it was possible.
If it would move, if it could stick.
Since the suffering was already Energy
would it take the speed
of light to move it into mass?
Or is it deceleration what is needed?
could it move through LOVE?
You asked for more tea
and didn’t answer me.
You started to work on one
of your mad equations
and I marveled at the wonder
of your hair and the brain beneath.
You handed me the equation
and suddenly I understood
for one second the equation
beneath the equation and then
you laughed that famous laugh.
I told you that epiphany
I just had, was gone…
And we both laughed together.
Then you left me to tea
and mystery once again.
