72 (who?)
Let’s meet again in an alternate universe
where your eyes are brown and I dyed my hair black
because I hated being a natural blue.
I’ll teach you to play guitar
and you’ll show me how to fly,
scholars caught in an intellectual love affair,
a tandem bike going nowhere.
I’ll know you by the gentleness
of your fingertips and you’ll need
no identifier but the slant of my handwriting,
because, world to world, some things don’t change.
#Glory-Be-Project Day who gives a fuck.

Felt like writing something surreal. This happened.

Copenhagen is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world. It also lends it's name to the quantum physics term, the Copenhagen Interpretation, which is that theory that says a particle exists in all states until someone observes it. In the many-worlds theory, all those states exist. The two theories are at odds with each other to say the least, but I liked the title too much to pass up.

[EDIT] Proving once again that I don't have any damn clue what my audience likes, this piece has baffled me with its popularity. Can someone explain it to me? I honestly didn't think that much of it when I posted it :XD:

"Because, world to world, some thimgs don't change."

The closing line I this poem really completed the whole thing very well. (Forgive me if I misspell something. I'm thumbing this on a tablet and am unused to writing text on the screen with my thumbs.)

I don't say this often because there are just so many love poems in the deviant univserse but this is probably one of my favorite love poems and I think it's because I like to think I relate to it. My boyfriend is a guitarist and I have often been complimented on my handwriting. It's lovely piece outside of relating to it from my own personal experiences. It tells a great story and I really enjoyed reading it. Great piece!

Your fellow writer

Thank you :) I've become more fond of this one over time, though I'm still baffled by how popular it is. I'm glad it resonates with you!

Isn't it funny how that happens with some pieces? :) 

You're quite welcome!

"I hated being a natural blue" made me chuckle xP

Great stuff. Especially like "
a tandem bike going nowhere".

I have no idea :shrug: You'd have to ask someone that lives there I guess.
