geometry is death math
a one-degree-at-a-time backwards death march
from one hundred eighty to zero in a lifetime
infinite possibility and perpendicular pomposity
end at the forty-fifth parallel while waiting for results
that don't come

because
once again
we have failed
to ask
the right-angled
questions

I think of geometry differently, though I do love the poetics of this post. Geometry defines volume, builds the invisible but all too real space around us, gives it hard edges. And I love that triangles divide larger shapes up almost no matter what.
