uncertainty principle

white cloud question mark

Moving away from the animal themes onto something a little more philosophical. This is a thinking out loud poem. You don’t have to agree with it. I’m just putting it out there. Asking the big – and not so big – questions.

why must it always be either/or
on/off, one/zero
black/white, left/right
male/female, cat/dog
dead/alive
yes/no
here or now
there or then

couldn’t it be both/neither
both and neither
right and wrong
off and on
zero and one
dead and alive
i’m not keen on binaries
i’m schroedinger’s cat/dog
