[OS X TeX] Dental problem

I use asparaenum a lot to number blocks of body text.
After a numbered paragraph, any new paragraph remains un-indented which 
is as I want it.
Occasionally, though, I like a new paragraph to be indented. Someone—I 
forget who, suggested that immediately upon
I have
\def\indent{\hglue 5.3mm}
This works beautifully as I now only need to start any paragraph I want 
to indent with \indent (which, previously, did not work).

In one short sentence, I now would like the same with compactitem 
(\def\indent{\hglue 5.3mm} does not work).

Specifically, while the following is un-indented both in body text and 
in asparaenum

& yyyy
& zzzz

it gets indented in compactitem

I tried to renewenvironmnt compactitem but this is way beyond my growing 
but still miserable TeXabilities.

I would be grateful for any help.
Forgive the title: I just came back from the dentist.
