Favorite Quote:
"He who is not willing to die for something is not fit to live" MLK


The infinite unit circle
Flowing back in on itself
Tangentially defining a heartbeat
As systolic and diastolic,
Ascend into the unknowable
And spilt the vacuum
While Sine and Cosine,
Jacob and Esau,
Wage war in lazy waves
Pausing only to strike each other,
When both are equal
And then, in passing, throw
Tangent again along its climb


The author's comments:
This is what happens when my mind wanders in math class. I wanted to write something on the beautiful, if somewhat perplexing, patterns of trigonometry.
