Abstract / Synopsis
"It's Tuesday, and the week's no longer new . . ." This poem's form is taken from the structure of the field with seven elements: the meter, in iambs, follows a pattern based on 5, 4, 6, 2, 3, the nontrivial values taken by powers of 5 (mod 7) as it generates the group of units of the field.
