I quote… (revererent pause)

I quote…     (reverent pause)



“To be or not to be?”
I quote…       (reverent pause)
                              Shakespeare.
He spoke of truth,
Tempest, love…death,
                              Iambic.

“Effective writing requires
An active…      voice.”
                              Yearwood.
Stephanie Yearwood
Taught me…      that.
                              Steffi
Made me wonder
Is being…       okay?
                              Doing?
Doing validates me
And being…       doesn’t?
                              Strange!

“Let X equal X.”
I quote…      (poetic pause)
                              Anderson:
Laurie Anderson, when
She speaks…      I listen,
                              Attentively!
She speaks mathematical truths,
Rhythmic drum…  &nbps; beat, beat
                              Eclectic.



When numbers are arranged
In a certain…      pattern:
                              Numeric,
And prime numbers marked,
They tend to…       spiral,
                              Expand
Outward, spiraling, spiraling
And expanding… infinitely.
                              Helix!
An infinitely expanding helix:
A sort of…       cosmic
                              DNA.
Expanding truths, mathematical,
Infinite and…       passive?
                              Being?
The truth expanding, doing?
Has expanded…      being?
                              Valid?
“To be or not to be?”
That was…       the question.
                              Answered?
