Dirac, or: Schrödinger

Poetry Partners #69

A clerihew by hutschi of ‘Neues vom Hutschi’

Paul Dirac constructed a strange adjunction:
He knew all about nothing
and called it the „Delta function“.

A clerihew by ben Alexander of ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’

Erwin Schrödinger
is best known for this zinger:
A hypothetical puss that's both dead and alive...
Clearly proves Copenhagen's contrived!

Nota bene!

The 1933 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded jointly to Erwin Schrödinger and Paul Adrien Maurice Dirac “for the discovery of new productive forms of atomic theory.”


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!
