The Sad Science

Die traurige Wissenschaft: well-ordered procession
of concessions: what we “know” and “don’t know.”

Beauty’s truthfulness siphoned and secured
somewhere in a file
or on a wooden shelf
next to a book by Eagleman or Pinker.

Sadness takes its stand: damning and wining
minds as materials: “cosmic laws” and “principles.”

Truth’s loveliness caught and tested
somewhere in a room
without a view
near a computer and a subject.
