Hypothesis zero...all bottomed out...unknown factor.. nothing relates. Clever, concise, perfect.

In a way, this portrays the separation of bonds. Reading this I remember a statement, "we are relatives, yet when we meet we act like strangers." I don't know whether it has a connection but I'm really impressed and inspired by this logical poem.

Mathematician or not you have captured the essence of loneliness for me in this Jacob. You are becoming king of senryu!

Welcome
Welcome Jacob
This is deep :)
I like the theme that comes out of this piece.."When all those precious people, who made life worth living, depart..there remains certainly nothing, and then w are just a lone variable, 'alone forever'.

Thank-you for sharing this beautiful piece, Jacob:)
