Calder's Model Universe
There is no better model for me to choose Sense of motion space volume
Than the universe: Knowledge of the cosmic
Sympathy for the human
Variation between the elements of life
Not extractions but abstractions
Resembling the real only in its manner of reaction
A mechanical drive can control movement.
I begin with shapes because they are dynamic;
And the rest is left to chance.
All the while calculating for balance.
Detached bodies floating in space
Varying sizes and densities
Colors and temperatures
Some at rest some moving
Some nearertogether others far apart
Repeating repeating moving gesturing
Tight middling unpunctuated
Velocity acceleration energy
Angular and linear Everything in motion
All in opposition Chords and cadences of unknown movements
Penetrated by vectors
Traversed by momentum
Nothing for certain.
Technical mathematical combinations
Always in equilibrium-
But if tipped:
Crown of ripples dethroning their king
Abruptly causing a thousand swans to sing.
