You Can Put Lipstick On A Higgs Boson

You can put lipstick
on a Higgs boson, but
it’s still a
mathematical pig

Oinks in traffic, heard
in Fourier transforms
are fine collective hype,
caught in the strings of a web.

An orchestra of spiders where
bassoons and strings are played,
sound charming
quirky
quarky

But at least
wait till October
for the artifacts gone real
to shout “Eureka!”
in the limit we have found
“Gravitas!”
—- Douglas Gilbert
(Henry Le Châtelier)
