Identity Is the Other of Invenntion

The fact that the world contains
Distinguishable objects
That can be counted
Should count against us.

Our gift and our curse
Is for treating similar
As same, without forgetting
Completely that it isn’t.

Similar things counted same,
Keeping intersecting sets
Distinct, a tool with an edge,

Identify, metaphor,
Number, everything we are
That sets us apart carves us.
