Triumph of the Hyperbola
lonely and afraid.
a single point left unfixed in the uncoordinated wilderness.
emptiness surrounds, and the axes of the world turn upside down.
disunity and lack of focus impales while over all,
in the distance the point sees, a standard bearer, a force of unity.
gone now the constant threat soon now the constant distance,
from the terror and the emptiness.
fixed and true the points now stand, a perpetual span across the land, curving all away and out.
curving towards that unknown limit,
the boundary which hides their brothers.
