23 Feb 2016 – Story Problem

Once Love came calling
but I kicked her to the street –
and never noticed!

A nightmare madness
screaming x-rays swallowed stars
caught in my ribcage.

Our mathematicians
speak of errors in our signs:
we take, ungiving,

and always wonder
why our sums are writ in red,
our hearts – the null set?
