The Mathemetician


Mathemeticians are born with formulae

waltzing about their heads where angels

have halos, trees have leaves in summer,

dinner tables have candles.


Numbersmiths dream in calculations

that sum up the day opposed to other

kinds of dreamers who fret and run

or scream themselves awake. Math

is calm and owns no emotion

just truth and proof.


Numerologists walk down a street

counting things from habit. How many

robins at those doors? Like that.
