In the dissemination of a little life’s work
The stutter of the violins
Was silenced in the cool flow of things
A tango on the pavement
Echoed in the ice
The crystal nature of mathematics
The columns of numbers
That define the power
Like the pillars of an ancient temple
To gods that danced with men
That now step to the product of enlightenment
In the digitization of symbolism
The mathematization of the arts
Or the revelation of the formulaic essence of nature
A linguistic necessity
In the patterns of the molecules
That give birth to life
Upon each and every conception
No child of the universe forsaken
In a squander of love
I let go of the rain
To dance in the hood of darkness
Thinking in the palace of light
To dwell on the quiet edges of the streets
Working on the conceptual rim of the castle
That would stand in lieu of peace
For the satisfaction of the irrational number
The chaos that trails off to eternity
From the most definite structure of a reason
Unraveling the mind
And cue the violins
