I remember Uzi

Uzi

Not just the name of a machine gun

But also

The name of a retired engineer

Living in Ra’anana;

Recently emigrated from Essex.

I couldn’t

For the life of me

Understand the Hebrew

mathematics.

I somehow missed-out on the minus times minus

And

The minus times plus

logic

That today

is second nature

and probably something, if I thought about it

in any detail

in any depth

I would get lost inside

like time

or

memory

or Zeno’s distance between two points;

a tautology.

But fortunately,

Uzi was able to explain

That which I didn’t understand

and,

when the teacher

Screeched eex and why & zed.

Hah!
