Richard Brautigan - As by the dead we love to sit,

As by the dead we love to sit,
Become so wondrous dear --
As for the lost we grapple
Tho' all the rest are here --

In broken mathematics
We estimate our prize
Vast -- in its fading ration
To our penurious eyes!

Typo

It is not "fading ration," it is "fading ratio." Goes with "mathematics," see?
