I had this weird dream in which a mathematician told me to look up the word “liftftg” in the dictionary. The dictionary said that a liftftg is a thing that is not an argument but nonetheless has the force of an argument. I asked the mathematician if a poem could be a liftftg.
He said “yes.”

Pave the world, I'm going to space.
Yes, those are propellers.
