DEFIANCE OF ARITHMETIC

from An Apogee


Defiance of arithmetic is simple, if you please:
that one plus one is three or more in human families;
that three is one, and one is three - 'it cannot be the same!'
and thus the Holy Trinity puts albegra to shame.
'Infinity can have no form concrete in the equation:'
and God would not abide the law; he wrought the incarnation.
The universe is burdened under logicalities;
defiance of arithmetic is simple, if you please.
