Alpha, beta, gamma, delta.
The way is clear. This formulation
both lays the problem out and then reveals
the parts of a solution.
All we need to do is make connection
alpha to beta using this equation,
then follow that suggestion
to make the beta, gamma, delta link.
Damn—I had forgotten
that this equation also needs some zeta factor
and my clear beta, gamma, delta connection
is screwed up by a zeta factor
in ways that I can neither
control nor understand.
Yet here’s a thought. Just maybe I can
circle round the tentacles of zeta
by striking gamma from consideration
and making an approximate relation
by tying beta up with mu and lambda.
I can’t see clearly: I’ll need to wander
some way in that direction to determine
whether some real delta integration
is possible at all. I have to try.
