Pin Ball

On the string quartets of Elliot Carter.


and fired

In frenetic determinations

Directions certain and sure

Thrown forward

Thrust toward

the limits of the frame

Defined, by the edge of the rebound

Resounding hard and pure

Orbs of size and density

Scatter across space

Fire, spin and ricochet

in angular collisions

Paths that divide and bifurcate

that splinter and proliferate

As neurons fire and illuminate

An interlace of events

stratification of time

and definition of space
