typewriter awry

affirming molecular revolutions

the impossible fact

Old Palmstrom, an aimless rover

Walking in the wrong direction

At a busy intersection

Is run over.

                 As clear as air:

Cars were not permitted there!

And he comes to the conclusion:

His mishap was an illusion,

And so he reasons pointedly:

That cannot be which should not be.
