Multiply and Divide Using Scientific Notation, a poem by David Garyan

Multiply and Divide Using Scientific Notation

Only scientists should seriously discuss science, meaning Judith Butler should stop talking gender.

Only psychologists should seriously discuss psychology, meaning Harold Bloom should’ve stopped talking behavior.

Only historians should seriously discuss history, meaning Stephen Greenblatt should forget the history of ideas.

Be an expert only in yourself.

Specialize. Divide. Categorize.

If you’re white, feel only your pain. If you’re black, do the same.
