Picking up Physicists 

by Frankie Sachs

(dedicated to CERN, with love)

 

Oh baby, I said,

is that a Proton Synchrotron Booster in your pocket

or are you just happy to see me?

 

How about we go back to my place,

he said,

and I’ll inject my beam.

 

I said, I wanna have your boson.

 

He said, the particles have to be stable

otherwise

they are prone to decay.

 

I know precisely where we are.

A Poem for A Fish 

by Frankie Sachs

 

There is a goldfish following me

(on Twitter).

 

No less surreal for being

an employee of the Seattle Aquarium

pretending to be a fish

on the internet.

 

The fish said:

Hey Frankie, write me a poem.

 

If fish love poems

there should be more of them

on the internet.

 

 

(for  @LeonardGFish, who really did ask for a poem. It was not the strangest thing to happen to me that day.)
