Before the heat gets unbearable

Before the heat gets unbearable
Breakfast in the Secret Garden on 97th Street
Iced coffee whitefish on sesame bagel
Lucky me in the shade
Of one of the city’s only peach trees!

Questions pile up

Today’s question:
Does entanglement
"Spooky action at a distance" (Einstein)
Occur only in the quantum world?

What about that zig-zag couple
Of cabbage butterflies?
What about Rachel tugging at my heart
Across great distances?

In the Secret Garden a grown man trembles
Before the laws of physics
