the poet affixes his form to philosophy
using linguistic mathematics
he calculates syntax of truth
words the numbers that measure ideas
phrases clauses and metaphors
notate equations revealing the
size shape and color of thoughts
propositional predicates flow
from the rhythm and meter describing
the pace of the human endeavor
while lyrical passages add and subtract
its emotional content
his verses convey
the most arcane principia
hidden within every
postulate question of life
this perhaps all too sadly explains
his elusive allure to the casual reader
