Scholar’s Wife

The next time she
hears of how he

statistical trends

to arrive at

data she’ll be
halfway sprung

in search of

heavy machinery
she can calibrate

to tear down
everything in

the town again

but still she’ll be
her own math

gone full metal
from somewhere

bare in the back
of her brain
