96 No more a conundrum


No revelation
The product of
Their square root
Was un-whole.
The fun was over
They sat disengaged
Burning in regions
Of nether perdition
Cooling in
Unknown half-lives.
Head to tail
Back to back
Diametrically opposed
Each figure inverted
And reversed
Niy and Gnay
Each now looking
The other way.
That supplementary
Now deficient
In diagonal
Polar harmony,
Sum undone
The one and five
Each less than ten
On and off
Divided they'd part,
Un-partnered run
Burdened ton
Unreached boundary
Unknown sum,
Wooden box of diamonds
No anniversary,
One minus the other
No sweet words three,
Each number a whole
Alone and set free,
But each connected
By common denominator
Inextricably linked
And will always be.
But could their ratios
Too great a divide
And experience be,
'til finally apart
Their uneven mix
At odds and evens,
The 9 and 6?

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
