La difference

Love makes no difference 
No difference to indifference 
And the cool taste in the eyes.

Love makes no difference 
To the world
To the world in him.

Feeling makes no difference 
To his machine, calibrating.  Move 
From state to state coldly.

Zeros and ones win every time;
For sheer survival technique 
They are prime

Links in the cha‡ne de montage
Of gain and loss,
Embossed design -

All art here.
Calculating a cold line
All numbers in their Prime

Count you fallen from
The full.
