Math and Music

Oval angels

make math difficult

The leaves have turned white.

They know what that means

and don’t want to

talk about it.

On paper,

the universe is as dull as

a towel.

The universe as a theory

reminds me of an

old riverbed.

In practice,

it is a high, drunken girl

looking to get away.

The angels always

keep the music,

numbers just out of reach.
