Atomic Know

The aphics crackle and hum around the home

  they find on the thin green branch, a world

  of curve and bending, one of subtle or drastic

  shifts in orientation.

The ladybug knows of gravity, air, and places to

  rest.  The pull that forces wings into action is

  what measures a world larger than a branch.

The human builds, like the ants, but rarely

  do the ants destroy.

The aphids worry not on the thin green branch,

  stickyfeet and clingingclaws provide a substitute

  for mass attraction.

Biology challanges physics, and sometimes loses.
