URBAN BOOK CLUB GATHERS TO DISCUSS
THE GRAND DESIGN BY STEPHEN HAWKING
ON THE VERY WEEK HIGGS BOSON IS DISCOVERED

By God, everyone will meet at Sandy’s,
though apparently the group will manifest only if only if only if
each can prescribe to the same
history in the same universe at the same time.
Luckily most members are politically and age compatible.
However – string theory may unravel
when it comes to sex and religion.

Sex? You know some will bring it up, they always do, still pining for the 60s’ lawless
laws-of-nature days. I guess we could call it a top-down model of cosmology,
an early big bang revolution.

As for religion, some prefer science to mysticism – that familiar
apple of Adam’s liking, or
as our author so wickedly dangles
in our faces as fable:

Viking wolves baying at the sun and moon.
Meddling Greek gods.
Even some obscure African deity named Bumba
who, when faced with an ache in his (or her) gut,
simply regurgitated us all into existence.
