MORE MATH POEMS
by Eileen Tupaz

y

it’s a game to me
to make metaphors
out of numbers;
to substitute
one
simple
abstraction
for another;
because math
[like life]
should never be taken
so seriously
and there are more
to figures
than ever meets
the eye

no solution

my mind is a matrix
that has been reduced
into row echelon form
and proven to be
– inconsistent
