2. black box recorder

Ladbroke Grove, thirty dead
                                             the death toll set to rise
police searching the debris
                                        for the black box recorder.

It's still a train crash                                            now
                                        but with multiple histories.
Schrödinger's cat                 two stories of radiation
hydrocyanic acid.

                                                                 It's fifty-fifty
for(int p=0;p<int(random()*10000;p++)
if(p%2==0)              petal='she loves me'
else               petal='she loves me not';

In the vertigo of coma
                                                faces press the window
block out darkness                          their closed eyes
drawn curtains                                                    deny.

Observe this poem                             a Rubik's cube
boxed Chinese numerology
                                                  not a transviolent art
not 5 October 1999                                            Juliet

Schrödinger's cat
                                          ten thousand accountants
                                                            can't put to rest
parallax error                                     one story dead

innocence and guilt                                        meshed
in darkness curtained                          signs unread.
                                         See yesterday's newsprint
a signal was missed                             signal SM109.

                                  As the wave function collapses
another person dies                            another limbo
burst                                                       like a bubble
it's perfect science.
