Not what I was expecting, but you never know how one thing gets to another.
Liana Mir reads, writes, and wrangles the muses from her mundane home in the Colorado Rockies and, occasionally, from the other side of the Barrier.
Knowledge solid, fluid (is) / Unlearning ev'rything.
One. Two. Three. Four. Five. Six.
Ice tank. Air bank. Blood rank.
Fire, water, soil—
I thought they called it earth?
Six lose five lose four and
End up with backwards three.
Knowledge solid, fluid (is)
Algebra and English,
Physics, fractions, grammar
Transformed by nonsense poems
And wisdom out of babes.
Backwards three gain two and
End up with backwards one.
Inside you make the heavens.
Know who you are: You’re done.
