(the physics of heat)
Philosophy means different things
to different people.
practitioners, apparently, are passionate
laymen, let’s assume, dive less deeply.
their ardor is applied
to the wisdom of the physical.
men of action, they, incurious:
doers, actors, copulators
(absorbed by entertainments);
neither sedentary nor seditious, say,
like true philosophers
intent on the elusive, the abstract.
make no mistake: they do so
at their peril
