I Was Reading Up on My Hellenic Math
by Heather Green

I was reading up on my Hellenic math: no zero yet, no transfinite set theory, no sine or cosine, just a Brotherhood that felt divine to its practitioners. You were back in California, riding on the waves, your father gone awhile, and me, you said, no consolation outside of the bed. I’ve never yet let go of zero, the multiplier best employed on incommensurate sums, either one on top a lovelier ratio, but when divided through becomes a number that can’t compute but instead goes on, in proof, diminished by each digit that it spews. Eudoxus did not quite anticipate you, a curve that skims but will not touch the bottom line. And then the Romans came, and all was lost for quite some time.

"Because when the knowledge is at the disposal of everybody, some people are in a comfort zone. When the knowledge is not at your disposal, you have to think. And you have to produce knowledge."

-Jose Mourinho, the best football manager in the world discussing his paradoxical view of football tactics in the information age

Was [Seven moving in] ultimately a net positive for you?

It’s twofold. It was a positive in refocusing your life, but I guess it was a negative [in] that it kind of sterilizes you in a way. You’re sitting around the house watching TV just horny, looking at the women. [Groans.]

Living With The News

Can I get used to it day after day
a little at a time while the tide keeps
coming in faster the waves get bigger
building on each other breaking records
this is not the world that I remember
then comes the day when I open the box
that I remember packing with such care
and there is the face that I had known well
in little pieces staring up at me
it is not mentioned on the front pages
but somewhere far back near the real estate
among the things that happen every day
to someone who now happens to be me
and what can I do and who can tell me
then there is what the doctor comes to say
endless patience will never be enough
the only hope is to be the daylight

-W.S. Merwin
