I stipulate, hypothesize, and guess,
Compile my data in an ordered line,
And see how the components might combine―
Where I should add for more, subtract for less.
The logic feeds its own recursive ends,
A meaningless parade of shining facts;
So helpful when reality contracts,
Until it's reached the point where nothing bends.
I follow it as far as it might lead:
A dead end at the start of every path,
And skeins of false equations' aftermath―
No more revealed to me of what I need.
When order forms my world and my defense,
It's odd how seldom anything makes sense.
Author's Notes:
Wishing I weren't always so analytical.
