what does math feel like? what does math feel like?

Languages English

crunchy    pointy
a perfect parallel park
when you pour a soda
and the foam fizzes to exactly
the rim of the glass

    your body-mind houses
a mycelium network that
i would need to be you to experience
    while i’m an ever-expanding
universe that you’ll only ever
be parallel to

    words snake from me
to you like an
ouroboros eating
its own tail     rules
grammar definitions

to describe things
not made of words

these words meet
with the tubular
smack of a rolled-up
newspaper

killing flies

if only we could talk in
emotions    sensations
thoughts

if only the ache in my gut
could empty your lungs
then perhaps you’d understand something
about me
after reading The Kekulé Problem by Cormac McCarthy and Why Poetry Is Difficult by Bianca Lech
there’s a possibility that language
is getting in the way
of what i’m trying
to say
