Musing over mathematics, models for reality, philosophy, etc.
If truth is beauty—
breath-taking equation
poised like dancer
in pointe shoes—

then it is biased in its loveliness.
Preference for symmetry
over stumbling ambiguity
determines the formula,

reality calculated
from head lumps, hand lines,
double helices.
We think answers will add up

if we worry problems
like loose teeth,
work them out here a little,
there a little,

line upon line upon precept—
but we strain to hear
God’s stammering lips
and trip over His unknown tongue.
