Spacetime

By: Alicia Sometimes

curved space  curved time                expanse that hugs                 around mass a framework a lattice the line that leans                 into the bend                hyperbolic trajectories elliptical orbits imprints of geodesic paths this textile weaves: time/ distance/ angle/ volume/ curvature  sews them into the grid your time my time never only time                we are two                 different plot points  leaving indentation  we impact everything around us

She is director and co-writer of the science-poetry planetarium shows, Elemental and Particle/Wave. "First observed in 2015, gravitational waves are ripples in spacetime, traveling away from exploding stars, merging black holes and other cosmological phenomena. Physicist Stephen Hawking called them ‘a completely new way of looking at the universe.’ Many scientists worked together for many years, on the frontier of science to make this incredible discovery a reality. I liked the idea of trying to bring to life the 'fabric of spacetime' stitching it together with words."
