"There is no use trying," said Alice; "one can't believe impossible things." "I dare say you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."
- Lewis Carroll

all the poetry in my soul
has been sucked away into the black abyss
of math class.
do now:
FOIL love until all that’s left is an ex
derive dreams down to zero
find me the lowest common denominator of humanity;
round to the nearest tenth
take out your calculator and solve for peace
break down the world into numbers and symbols and write me an equation for the human heart
tell me the square root of life
keep in mind the time limit
you will be graded after class.
