He gave an invited talk.
"Give me wealth or give me death"
Was the gist of it.

He thought about the word, gist,
And its narrow usefulness
In English, a sufficient
Incompleteness shrugged.

The number itself
The dream's interpretation,
The dream's interpretation
The essence of the number.

One. Two. That's the gist of it.
Whole, once multiplied, is not
Ever whole again.
