The Appliance of Science

The attractive qualities of a fridge magnet
can, of course, work in reverse.
What might attract can also repel,
opposites held in the same metal plane,
observing the physical laws laid down for them
and yet defying their emotional logic -
if such a thing can be said.

What we know of each other
may contain nuts;
my love, your revulsion,
perhaps different expressions
of the same thing,
or the same expression
of different things.
