Excerpt from "The Improbable Notebook ..."

The flash of intuition,
space & time seen in a vision --
he fingers the key to the galaxy,
he feels the smooth metal
of the common laser,
he looks at the haphazard art
of the wires, the emitter;
he sees where the particles change,
where the future might crumble.

Excerpt from "Improbable Jane"

"A threat?  You think Jane Doe
	would give you a glance?
	she's a dynamo
	she will untie the world.
You damn her to convulsions
	but you don't even know
	who she is."
