Algebra, calculus, and physics are haunted
Like the Ghost of Flannery O’Connor’s South.
Inex’rable as gravity, undaunted.
Astrophysics and quantum mechanics prowled
By Inevitability Himself,
From black holes’ black horizon to black bears’ growl.
Relativity is absolutely wealth
Overflowed from the riches of His gold-hoard.
Equations like Newton’s apple ‘fore Him fell.
The heavens, the earth, their Maker’s glory tell.
