First I proved there is no God and then I disappeared,
The violence of this I dismissed and then my conscience cleared.
A flash of light was left behind for all the world to see—
The thunder sounded shortly after—then there was no me.
The queer sensation quickly passed, a tingling feeling, strange,
Then I focused on the act that left my spirit changed.
I remember performing simple math, a child’s task at best—
But the final problem I deduced would never give me rest.
‘Twas the inverse logarithmic function I was working through.
Derived, this fellow is itself, and integrated too.
Logician’s nightmare, absurdist’s dream, this controversial “e,”
Is how I learned, above all else, that God resides in me.
