Number and number

equals 'and'

      by established law

               for the connotator

but not for the denominator

            kept low to the bottom

                      so the lake has a vent for the mayor

                          solid as any argument


world wide

dont get divided

when the mayor goes swimming

keep him floating anywhere

once the universal laws of buoyancy have been established

to end where their aint no water



where you wont find no one or the mayor swimming


but the mayors telescope

sink anywhere else

and of course the water

              has no where at all anyway but

with the mayor

     to measure it

you need both the mayor


the water

   however numerically big city hall or heavy in mass the water

       thinks to divide and survive their renumerifictions

grow thinner their conceptual energy

more rises the congregation

to count and collect

bottom to top

where they all is at.


But floating somewhere

with some new fangled

bootstraps lift 'em

good as

Calvin felt the spirit


from a lack of

preying for water

might had done 'em better

     than try and measure

        the size of space

        fills the time

                 of the diet they planned.

                 or the mass of heavy water.


A good experiment or an experiment on good

matter only

                        the same hand holds the glass

                                                  drink the water.

Marvin E. Kirsh
