Zero Full

1 November 2017

You can say this talks about nothing
all you want.
but “zero” is clearly and richly filled
with signs and signage.

Not to say meaning
and strangeness,
a whole semiotics–
signs of being which is nothing–

though how do we know?
Perhaps such concepts
have microscopic cellular
movements far beyond our senses?

Is zero the phase transition
between nothing as void,
as really blankly nought-
and number?

Are zero and number
like steam to water, water to ice
a single substance in many forms?
And what is that substance?

Or perhaps it is π that illustrates
phase transition even better
from a poly-polyphonic-hedron
to a “simple circle.”
