Triangles

by Ellen Hopkins
Scientists say every action initiates an equal and opposite reaction. I say that’s just the start. I say every action initiates a most unequal and unpredictable chain reaction, that every filament of living becomes part of a larger weave, while remaining identifiable. That each line of latitude requires several stripes of longitude to obtain meaning. That every universe is part of a bigger heaven, a heaven of rhythm and geometry, where a heartbeat is the apex

of a triangle.
