Ambient harmonic sounds
tease the nonbeliever with the fact that halves
sounds pretty pleasant together –
and that the mathematics he so adores
is embedded in existence
and not man’s to create or destroy,
but to discover.
Traces of a great looming conundrum
emerge in patterns that shouldn’t be.
They surround and drive me past the timberline
where the mot juste for all that is experienced
reveals itself without a joule spent.
Above the timberline
and past five ledger lines:
frequent noises blur into silence –
a perk of having limited ear drums,
thank ______ for evolution.
