The next plus two is found Astride a treasure on its own Spare no expense, search everywhere Beside a bird that’s rarely thrown
Going along with my theory a Tetractys might be hinted at in the previous stanzas..... and maybe the first piece is a 'triangle'-- the top---- then the line 'The Next plus two' (a triangle plus two others/turned) is noticed.... and might be a Trapezoid and needed to search for... or something....
Just trying to get some discussion going, as this hunt is pretty cool.

"bird that's rarely thrown" I had as being the Twitter logo.... but.... three strikes in a row (which I'm guessing is rarely thrown in bowling terms) is known as a "Turkey", so that could be another bowling link
I really like the idea of a 'Turkey' linking to the bowling reference, partly because we do have the word 'Spare' right above it..... That's great inatimate1.... I wasn't aware they were called that... cooooool.
I was thinking along the lines of XXX is 101010 but that is computer ones and zeros. I can't get a fix on the "astride a treasure on its own". The rest of the lines are all about bowling to me. A Bowling trophy?
Also on this stanza, the first line is a spare in bowling terms to me so that is a // as it states the nest two. so is the the // we need fore a website address? and the rest of the lines are the needed characters?
Personally, I think we're looking for a 10-letter word. If the first part is HOME and the last part are four letters designated by 1. Explode 2. the strongest wind 3. No sea legs here 4. a song by D.D.E.
then I think "the next plus two" is simply telling us he is referring to the middle two letters.
