Poem 123

Don’t kid yourself, I’m not going around again

Certainly now that I know the shortest route
To a circle is not the circumference…
Fuck pi, going on and on, moodier than a femme fatale.
Pick a number pi, land on a repeating decimal, settle for rational
But we shouldn’t settle for anything less than a modern miracle,
That’s the secret to striking a chord worth a secant
The line traced out is just the tedious long drawl
That’s what I know about circles…
That’s why I’m not going round.
