This is a story about distinction
No, wait, let me rephrase that.
It is a story about separation.
As you heard it,
patterns of division.
I vaguely remember the exact number
Was it twenty one?
Fifty three eliptic brandings construct our world.
Technological blues and purples,
Remarkable, accurate devices
to promote names.
Eliptic labels to distinguish
this from that and this one from the other,
One thousand eight hundred and seventy five measurements
between here and Africa.
