Why Make An Enemy of Us, Mathematics?

Why make an enemy of us,
mathematics,
when we have so much
in common,

and seem familiar
in tree form or else
mosaically making amends

to share the greater part of the same end:

to go spiraling,
exploding,
through some worm’s
digestion

to beat rhythm against
future brain stems
and erupt from
a suddenly bashful
New Orleans

claiming what was promised
when the last bit of blame
is penned

and waking to discover,
underneath the stares,
the same stem
and the same snares
awaiting them.
