Questions run through my mind, like words with no sound, saying everything possible, and yet nothing at all. Things that once seemed simple are fighting to explain themselves, while those things that truly matter elude understanding, just leaving me confused.

"A mathematician once said that algebra was the science for lazy people—one does not work out x, but operates with it as if one knew it. In our case, x stands for the anonymous masses, the people. Politics mean operating with this x without worrying about its actual nature. Making history is to recognize x for what it stands for in the equation."

Poem Written Within the Walls of Science

I’m not actually in a science building —

Just thinking of a boy there.

He’s probably wearing a

white coat and mixing

chemicals and not

inhaling the fumes.

I wonder if in trying to

not blow up the building,

he is daydreaming of me.

I’m scribbling away poems and

he’s scribbling away numbers and

I wond3r

We collided —

like two comets burning

fast and bright

Blinded by each other

Yet we couldn’t see ourselves.

We were reflected

[rejected]

And our auras mingled until

we couldn’t distinguish

Ourselves,

Until the colours muddied

and turned dark.

And in our rich sable slumber we groped for the light we once possessed.

I can’t even concentrate on anything right now. This whole thing and the vibe on campus is just so unsettling.
