Affront

determination alone
    cannot change
    4 into a 3
despite airy principles
    that comfort

we are left astonished
in the silence that dares
    such audacity
as if silence solidifies
any whim as real

but as you feel it
    is your right
do not presume
the trickery of absence
diminishes any law
that binds our matter
    together
