Fusion (△H=n△Hfus) – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Spectre – Word of the Day

Fusion  (△H=n△Hfus)

Once when I was lysergic,
I knew a little ecstasy,
and though mere distortion,
I had never known such colour,
such shapes,
or feelings,
until I looked upon a dragonfly
dancing across the water,
a prismatic dewdrop on a blade,
and the sun bowing in the eve
in a climax beyond experience.
But of all the heights,
and there have been many,
nothing comes close
to the ecstasy we ignite.

Note: △H=n△Hfus is the equation for the heat of fusion – which is the required amount of energy needed for matter to change from a solid to a liquid without an increase in temperature of the matter. (see Reference.com) And ecstasy is a related to spectre.

  6. Once when I was hypodermic
    I knew a little muchroom.
    So perhaps something
    in common within the fusion
    of perpetual motion.
    Vincent, this is a most poetic equation.
