From Other

In Poetry on April 7, 2012 at 7:53 pm

Sections by joints of stiff-clear white
Floating an octal numbering system
Eating for the first time of the zero
Emptiness like the unheard echo
Of subtraction tables.
BEEP
Jumped from mathematics
To logic: “one equals one”.
And more words were added:
Yes
Correct
Negative
No
;
Ten tons of intelligence
If I could snatch a sample
But just how big they were
Jellyfishlike
No scissors cut but bobbing
In the icy liquid,
No syringes passing through
As long thick appendages
Grew many new aspects
Of alien
Inquisitive
Strange.
