Poetry Friday: Orchards by Holly Thompson

Newton's third law
of reciprocal action
for every action there is an equal
and opposite
that all forces are interactions
all forces come in pairs

Physics and You
spells it out
if body A exerts a force
on body B
then body B will exert a force
of the same magnitude
on body A

push and pull

I think
maybe this
is what happened
with Lisa
and you, Ruth -
body A
and body B

- from the verse novel Orchards by Holly Thompson
