Making Love with Crystal Antennas

....while making love with crystal antennas

the electromagnetic pulse attracts Sir Isaac Newton's ghost,
and he watches as I make passionate love within a Chemical Wedding

His poor soul is still grounded here on earth,
for he cannot step into the light
until his (A)ether theories are set right

What a weight to have upon my shoulders

I make love with crystal antennas,
dialing my testicles beyond mere Amplitude and Frequency Modulation --
they hang as crystal diode plums

I stick the crystal antennas into my ears,
transmitting my soul to many destinations.
Depending on which receivers can filter the frequencies,
makes for vast differences in experiences

Sometimes I can even see you
while my brainwaves fly all over the place.
Yes, I even see you with that sad look on your face,
and I can only hope that one day the reflection in the mirror
is of someone you finally, truly love

Poor Sir Isaac Newton's ghost is expecting a lot from me,
especially since Albert is the one who punched holes in his BreAeth(er).
How can I stand up to Albert?
Maybe I am far too lost in theories of un-relativity
to fully comprehend the gravity of the apple in his eye

I do want to help send Sir Isaac Newton's ghost into the light,
just haven't quite figured-out how to make his mathematics right

It feels strange having Sir Isaac Newton's ghost watch me,
but I have a strong sense there is more to be found in this release,
and how if I stop making love with crystal antennas,
I may never find the proper lock in which to insert the golden key

If I don't eventually come around to figuring out this theological math,
will I join the ghost of Sir Isaac Newton,
watching someone else make love with crystal antennas,
cheering them on, while their testicles hang like crystal diode plums?

    Things that make you go hmmm ;) do you know Mantak Chia puts forth that the spine acts as an antennae to receive the chi of the universe, the human upright spine is what connects universal energy to the earth magnetic energy? Light & Love

    hey, this is very clever. Loved all the references to those big brainiacs in history. A very sci fi kind of love poem!! I just read that contest page about Agony Aunt and whipped up a bunch of limericks for it. even bawdier than the collaboration with Jack but won't post them till later. Glad you liked reading the ones I did with Jack!

    Great, Peter!! Metaphors to the tenth power! You never disappoint me with your poems, Sir. At 44, I thought that I've seen, heard ... taste everything, but probed me wrong. I never tried the Crystal Antenna! : D

    How much imagery and metaphor can you fit/twist into one poem? Yes, reception and broadcasting is needed by the sacred lock. And damn, the crystal antennas are the LONGEST. Now, the only thing I hesitate to ask..this is probably more miss than hit but is the weight of "S"ir "I"ssac "N"ewton SIN-ful? No matter what they say, dialing does not lead to blindness.
