problems with mathematical answers

men with rotting smiles hanging from their necks

one tooth one woman

a chain of trageties grinning from ear to ear

one curse one savior a timeline of thought mentioned in the text

memories with captions for dramatic effects

narrowed to an ill-minded science

to a few numbers and letters

and letting logic take over

this isn’t an invention

this isn’t a revolution

it’s been done before

a ritual

burned at the stake

flaming haystacks

there was no motion

only grief

there was no innocence

only greed

solved with a theorum

and listed on page one-fortythree

initialed and filed

under the same name as it’s author

a vague form of writer’s block

keeping it safe from it’s own ending

let the audience be my murderor

notching their bedpost

another kill

another tooth for the chief

more proud than before

he takes no hostages

no survivors from the jungle

nobody makes it through the bush

aid is eaten or buried alive

and we become a story

then a list of heros

then a torn photo in a high school textbook

no blood was shed above ours

it was sacred

now they’ve leveled the playing-field

and we were forgotten

on page one-fortythree
