Upon reading the results - To Alan Turing

Upon reading the results,
To Alan Turing 

Genetic abnormalities,
he said in his white coat,
ordinary exceptions that prove
maddened chromosomes.
But the sum, the calculation
does not return,
it spits on all his pain.

You, who gave birth
to large artificial thought
closed in lived diversity
in retrospect like a vice
under a sky of numbers
and signs, you’ve found evil
in the fable that constricts
the deformed face
of your generation’s morale.
