The problem wasn't obvious until I copy-pasted it into an editor:

You have tabs instead of spaces for the line defining ep.

The rule of thumb is that your editor must expand all tabs into matching
spaces for whitespace-sensitive languages like haskell. Or else you'll
waste time with this kind of parsing errors.
