Infinity

infinity minus one
equals
infinity &
infinity plus one
equals
infinity &
infinity plus infinity
equals infinity
but the biggest
infinity
is the number
of incalculable
calculations
whose answers
never come
because there are
always
always
always
more numbers
to calculate
and each solution
sets up the conditions
for the next
calculation
precisely as
each goodbye
sets up the conditions
for the next hello
us, you, me - we are infinity
you minus me equals goodbye
equals an absence
of imponderable ponderings
unrecollectable recollections
unimaginable imaginings
and undreamable dreams
when we're apart
there are infinite permutations
and combinations
of memories and maybes
us, you, me - we are infinity
you plus me equals hello
equals a presence
of the impossibly possible
the unnattainable attainment
of unhoped hopes
and as yet unwondered
wondrousness
when we're together
there are infinite permutations
and combinations
of delights and desires
infinity minus one
equals
infinity &
infinity plus one
equals
infinity &
infinity plus infinity
equals infinity
but the biggest
infinity
is the number
of incalculable
calculations
whose answers
never come
because there are
always
always
always
more numbers
to calculate
and each solution
sets up the conditions
for the next
calculation
precisely as
each goodbye
sets up the conditions
for the next hello
