World on a String

by Robert Borski

Whether helical coils of DNA
or the fundamental strands that comprise

the warp and woof of the universe,
eventually, using science

and the opposable thumbs of our minds
as plectra,

we would-be harpists will find a way
to strum both to our advantage,

creating either übermenschen, free energy,
or portals to far-flung stars,                                  

plunking each string to the future
one arpeggio at a time.
