Pseudocompleteness and its aftermath

My husband has been working on a project looking at the intersection of mathematics and poetry. Inspired, I used phrases from the contents page of one of his math textbooks to write this love poem:

Pseudocompleteness and its aftermath

Quite like the classical case:
We two brought
into nearness, then
into connection, then
into compaction, then
into supercompaction, that is,
through compactifaction –
An elegant uniformity.


Yet, an unpleasant surprise generated
by difference, then
by variant, then
by asymmetry, that made
possible separation.


Later, upon (co)reflection,
we admit
nearness, in a weaker sense
