Caleb Washburn


I am the physical representation of the greatest sense of inadequacy; somebody needed me into existence:
                                           a country betting on sequels
coming through. My great vision: panoramic.                        You have to zoom in
to comprehend the data I give, to flatten an eye down to a sheet
so it’s more easily mapped and coordinated. Let me display
                   why accuracy and precision are different.     I am deadly
accurate. Give me a window.              Just tell me which window.
