Math Is An Enlightened Demand

Math Is An Enlightened Demand

a crash solution
to light chaos
the neon pressure
in an evolution sun

the Turing Machine
a forgiveness experiment
a genius worth more than
the world’s too late
apology malfunction


Our First Identity In This Life Thing

is only a
reference human 
an unwilling start
crude branched frame
and weight meeting
cheap electric
jumpstarted by
our parents
wired in meaning

we are then
augmented by
data/facts/candor
coded with expression
and empathy fusing
an upright spine
given the power
to outrun our
original primitive
rendition


Too Soon Children Learn The Cadence Of A Forked Tongue

whistle of heat
as hands just miss
encased in arms
the rest of the body
forced to grasp flight
