wwwwFootnotes www23 June 2009

wwwwAt the end, I could explain you
wwwwwith numbers, concepts and ideas,
wwwwby well-thumbed proofs, sans-serif,
wwwwarmed and pointed with footnotes

wwwwBut it helps to switch on
wwwwthe dehumaniser, as blood spills
wwwwin anticipation of the rain
wwwwand we hang the flags out to soak

wwwwWhen the great is less than a friend,
wwwwthe deep is thinner than a leaf,
wwwwthe unswept specks are left unsaid,
wwwwand you lose on a technicality
