Am I The Only One--a poem

Christ In Winter: Reflections on Faith for the Years of Winter

As the only scholar in a barbarian
land must feel when the theorem
proves,
     “Am I the only one
       in the world who knows
        this truth?”
and puts aside
the stub of chalk and rubs
away the evidence of thought,
so much distrusted
in that land, I wonder
as I gaze upon my own equation,
if I am the only one who sees
that this punctiliar x
does equal that peculiar y.
