Cause and Effect

Scottish physicists declare
that the universe may stop expanding
and implode instead

English physicists declare
that neutrinos suggest
that effect could precede cause

An American woman dances
with joy in a kitchen,
laughing and singing, while

a Scottish man melts butter
in a skillet, breaks eggs,
drops them in the butter,

adds pepper and salt,
flips the eggs with a spatula,
adds more salt, more pepper,

toasts two slices of bread,
puts them on a plate,
covers them with the eggs,

hands her the plate and a fork,
kisses her, kisses her —
the dance goes on
