The Particularization of Impulse
The tsunami in open ocean
is one meter high
and travels at 500 miles per hour.
is the genericization
carries no evidence
Of the particulars of its generation.
Only as it passes and causes local accelerations in media—
Only as, on its shoaling, the scarcity of medium forces
the transduction of its impulse
to greater local effect
Is the energy of the tsunami again
Of nonliquid matter—
particulars related only through the state-chain of causality of impulse
To the particulars of its generation.
