Within a month

of the date I was born,

the Nobel Prize for Physics

went to Born and Bothe –

it seems the committee was torn as to

whose breakthrough they would thus adorn.

The world into which I was delivered was

just discovering certitude wrong.

Absolute exactness clearly quivered.

Uncertain dualism came on strong.

The paradigm shift from these incidents gives

me a giddy sense of the sublime.           Unsure,

I claim that no coincidence caused me to be

conceived at this same time.

A world of unqualified certainty could

not provide the wiggle room for me.
