scientific untheories

reading theories
on which freezes faster
boiling or cold water
some of the greatest
thinkers through time
claiming hot water
freezes quicker than
cool water in defiance
of newton’s law
it is utterly less than
meaningless but i can’t
shake this headache
and my mind won’t quiet
i need a distraction
something to provoke
a fundamental reaction
this crushing pressure
provoking lethargic inaction
leaving me melting down
into a pool of detraction
i am exhausted mentally
agonized physically
and everything i need
to ease this anguish
is just out of reach
wondering which came first
the frozen boiling water
or the chicken and the egg
unwilling to give more
to the goddamned vampiric
ceiling draining me dry
