Just when you think
you can't possibly articulate 

your good intentions
any better,

or beta-
test a plausible 
explanation any longer,

or parse 
and reparse the hard
data more often;

that's exactly 
when there's a rupture—

the notion 
of number suddenly 

Now, elaboration
is coming so easy

that prolixity cannot 
possibly be the mission;

the quality 
of the conversation 
won't deepen either,

and even compounding 
the interest is 

after your brain 
has prolapsed 
to that place where 

one more notion
to an ocean of others

no longer 
counts as a 
larger amount.
