Glib string theory is too minuscule
to be measured, but symmetrical
dancing partners can be assumed –
electrons with selectrons, quarks
with squarks, comets and cometia.
Kamikaze sungrazers detonate
tourbillions of gamma rays and X-rays
when matter collides with anti-matter,
illuminating the obsidian matrix.
Reds and blues shift like soccer
players or pixels on a TV screen,
merging and submerging, a linear
pedigree of paired silhouettes,
strawberry jam and peanut butter
advancing and retreating in turn,
opening valves, closing leaflets,
trading gases, eradicating mush.
Forces combine, loops connect
and vibrate to fit curved space.
