Alison Ross, The Arabic Zero


             Collapsing the Arabic Zero, image by Daniel Y. Harris 



The Arabic Zero

The Arabic Zero is an apparition.
It will crack the code in your eyes.

The Arabic Zero is an alien.
It will burn the books in your eyes.

The Arabic Zero is an atom.
It will slash the photons in your eyes.

The Arabic Zero is a number between yesterday and never.
It will solve the universe in your eyes.

The Arabic Phantom is a Zero.
It will burn the aliens in your books.


—Alison Ross
