For Coe

when convictions come to pass,
G-d knows letter floats above numbers.
an equal sign is not is: it’s not isn’t
but it is not is.

a plus sign is not the same
as and: and is a is the root that holds
a blade of grass in the soil while equals
makes things on the level.

a sine curve is not the breaking wave
of the ocean as the wind whips about it,
turning it, churning it solely so the crest
can find its place on a plot.

my death will be more than minus.
