at the instant of x

Brutes abstract not.

--John Locke, An Essay Concerning Human Understanding

the way that I can put each number
against the cool of your skin
lingering above

the ratio matching nature
greek symbols across the sidewalk
like hopscotch for theorists
explaining each dimension
of yard grass limb

stretching over moments
from the very first
when you stood, brown corduroy
and i listed the mathematics
of inclination
