minus one is a radical idea
so radical that –
So that’s where I’ll begin
This mathematical mind scramble just threw me
Sensibility never made much sense to me
To say we were once
one would be a computational error
I can’t solve for X because I don’t know the alphabet
you know I don’t do division long-hand
I don’t do division well at all.
Do you think
we were one or just two imaginaries
being added together?
i + i for an i + i
2i is still not real
and you can’t divide by zero
So is this a division problem
Where do I begin?
From a tiny wish?
A whisper of imagination sent to heaven?
Does God hear me?
Am I an echo of a prayer?
beginning again where I left off?
Were we divided
or just whispering?
