fragment from a handheld device #5

who would know better than we
to fear
the ones who come in boats?


  1. If conundrums are symbolic, Bruce, in the sense that this fragment of yours could be assigned a symbol; I conjecture an assignation either of p for proton or whatever the symbol is for a lead nuclei "at an energy of 574 TeV (92.0 µJ) per nucleus (2.76 TeV per nucleon-pair)".

  2. the ultimate f max...

    as we used to say, in homage to high school higher-level maths classes.

    i no longer know what it meant. and suspect (no, KNOW) i never really did.

    my brain just doesn't work that way.

    but i can parse a phrase to within an instance of its' participle - whilst eating a burger, combing my hair {i never did; 'least not since '04}, turning a cartwheel, watching the news, and preparing dinner for four...

    you have me.

    or, we have each other.

    eewwww..... icky...
