**Mathematical Truths**

Mathematical truth: a perfect right angle

cannot exist in the physical world.

How do the mathematicians

go on with their lives,

knowing these things?

How can they survive,

understanding that infinity

is equal to infinity-minus-one?

Didn’t the floor beneath you,

just now, become

awfully precarious?
