Romantic, After All

With one word, then another
worlds change in the utterance

Not a spew but calculated
as inspiration, thought and Beethoven

When all that’s necessary is
attention paid; the precision magic

The geometry of innocence,
and sacrifice, the blood of mathematics

The awful angst of the stock market
how it is not how it ought, your

Count then always off: not
to miss the sinew of science

The bright outright strength
romantic, after all
