Part 3: In 2-Speak - Poem by Douglas Scotney

A sliver of convenient numbers,
usually less than a hundred,


to which there is no start.
Da, ist no succour.
Da, ist no-Arbeit.
Da, sind Heitgewiss
(high-as-a-kite certainty)
and no-comfort-in-numbers
(no-Nummerbequemlichkeit) .

Poet's Notes about The Poem

da, there; ist, sind, is, are; Arbeit=work
