Math.
To do it
To speak it
To learn it
To live it
To love it.
Impossible.
I cast off my numerical chains
To write a poem
A poem about….Math?
Letters and numbers
On my paper set my to slumber
Dance through my dreams
Screaming in my sleep.
I wake
I wake to do….Math?
Nay
To read
To read a book
A book with letters
And numbers on the bottom
In their rightful place
Subservient.
But wait
A realization
An epiphany
A firework in my mind
All my numbers would be lost
Lost without my numbers at the bottom
Yes, my numbers
Perhaps not so different after all.
Math.
To do it
Grudgingly.
To speak it
Haltingly.
To live it
Partially.
To love it
Possible….
Perhaps.
