An Angel of Inclination
by Andrew Aung
Parallel lines, the definition of,
fated by Euclid to never converge.
One stares at the other, a long lost love,
knowing that such lines will never merge.
By its definition, parallel lines
Stretch equidistantly infinite times.
Whereas Euclid’s fifth postulate, which states -
Two interior angles, a and b,
of sum less than 180 indicates
lines that cross but spread out infinitely.
So do not fear the confines of guidelines,
for the smallest tilt means signs of all kinds.
ANDREW AUNG: I currently attend UAlbany as a freshman. When friends and family have failed, literature did not. I write because I am afraid of death. I write because I think, because I am.
