Wrong guy here ... I appreciate and praise that some poets are really going round the back and making words/concepts do novel things but it is too brainy for me since I don't concentrate for long enough.
But if you finish up by remarking that if nothing happens ten times then it means nothing happpened, I gotta disagree. I distinctly remember nothing happenning sometimes, and it might have been a good thing to happen or a bad thing but it did not happen no times as far as I can work out.
A friend once punched me for saying everything he said made no sense, but I think we were both a bit drunk at the time. That adds up to complete nonsense but I remember it vividly as one thing that occurred. That is why, after studying philosophy, I believe arithmetic is only good for deciding which bills not to pay, and is no good at all for metaphors, but all the same zero is by no means a negative quantity ..... um ....

Seems to me as if you are talking of a relationship that has become null. Speaking in binary terms, would we then say that a relationship may be 1, 'on', or else 0, 'off'? Or that one person could be considered (not by my reckoning, though) 'incomplete' without another, and thus round down to 0?
This is what happens when you get me going on math/logic. Just see what you have done.
