I used to be one, alpha and alone. Then I met another and we became two.
A second pair of ones made us group to four. Separate couples in love conjoined by the door.
I thought, "Yes, perfection resting in one place. No single forsaken. No odd to replace." And with the others I began to relate. Between all my lovers, dancing figure eights.

But I don't know what's happening so does that really matter? Do we matter? What matters? Who cares besides ourselves what happens? Is that a paradox? Will the world explode? What have I done? Oh well :1 all that matters now is
