* “second derivative” : In the branch of mathematics known as the Calculus, the derivative of the derivative of a function. Aka the instantaneous rate of change of velocity, or acceleration (which in common parlance is simply “the speed of speed").

the speed of solitude increases fast,

like the second derivative; to last,

velocity accelerates near black holes,

which tug light into singularity's sinkhole.

If isolation never wings up past,

if desolation, forever steadfast,

must for eternity blast, then controls

despair all? Not so! Space-time's curvature

let's us all firmly stand on Earth's hard ground

of hope: shielded by her vaulted feature

of pure blue sky, and atmosphere all-round

this sun-bathed orb (free from mankind's nature,

this life's dismay, and gamma-ray background)!

## For Manic, Listless, Bipolar, Mad Souls

For manic, listless, bipolar, mad souls,the speed of solitude increases fast,

like the second derivative; to last,

velocity accelerates near black holes,

which tug light into singularity's sinkhole.

If isolation never wings up past,

if desolation, forever steadfast,

must for eternity blast, then controls

despair all? Not so! Space-time's curvature

let's us all firmly stand on Earth's hard ground

of hope: shielded by her vaulted feature

of pure blue sky, and atmosphere all-round

this sun-bathed orb (free from mankind's nature,

this life's dismay, and gamma-ray background)!
