Lent 35 (Mathematics)

1 – 1 = 1
To lose the certainty of faith
in order to gain it again:
what math is this?

2 – 2 = 3
To lose impartiality in love
just to find foolish Love;
it doesn’t add up.

To lose even the respectability of salvation
so that the sheer chaos of redemption
might be more fully realized
(as if 10 – 10 = 500):
entirely illogical.

on Philippians 3:4-8
