Newton's Third Law
Lisa Vihos


For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction

go come
born die
wake sleep
land fly
run stop
start stall
spread retreat
push fall

cry laugh
clutch throw
mute shout
hide show

part combine
swell thin†
gather fling
end begin

Imaginative structure. Shows what Newton's Third Law is. I love the conciseness of it.

Interesting poem. Surely a departure from the norm. I enjoyed it.

That final line is my favorite--open closure!
