Sampurna Chattarji: Longing without logic

Misreading computability as compatibility i.e. mistaking
computability for compatibility is reading compatibility
into computability with an eye that sees desire everywhere,
so that the statement compatible processes of physical law
explains how some limbs lock so well together
arms hair hollows made to receive protrusions synch like sound
and your smiling is recondite only to the stranger who does not see
real numbers are not compatible so that whole sensations
negative rational or irrational are merely fractions of recurrence
of longing without logic pressing against the limitation of compatibility
with every inch of the body that refuses separateness.
