Two Poems by Brian Vargecko
 

Passively Aggressive 3rd  Degree Burns At Breakup Time

 

She might have been stroking 

 

She might have been stroking 

 

     her forearm  like a cat  before 

 

She was stroking her forearm like a cat  then 

 

I recall 

 

I recall her stroking her forearm like a cat 

because she was standing in front of the stove

 

She was standing in front of the stove

with the kettle blaring

 

She was standing in front of the stove 

with the kettle blaring and she was 

stroking her arm like a cat

 

I said Aren’t you going to turn off the stove

instead of standing there stroking 

your forearm like a cat? Can’t you 

hear the kettle blaring?

 

When I’m through I’m throwing this water at you

she said 

And that’s why we’re here

 


 

The Wave Of The Electron 



 

Quantum wavefunction —

Only a wave when you’re not looking ―

Different electron systems

 

have different functions

says the lowercase psi symbol

 

a function of (x)

telling you all you need to know

 

of a wave’s shape

but not telling you

 

anything

what shapes mean
