30 Oct 2000 ReadMe   » (Journeyer)


source code
was second nature to me:
there was
no great barrier
to understanding.
I had
direct experience
about what had been written.
I could
if I wanted
implement each verb;
manipulate each noun;
attribute each adjective.

Even the lines
that weren't clear
I found neatly delimited by
certain sequences of symbols.

Those lines
required me
to improvise
my interpretive mode;
to relax my guard;
to let words mean less
and yet mean more:
less precision,
fewer words,
encompassing more.

I crossed a bridge
composed of comments
passing from
my internal world
to your external
extensible universe.
