He Should Have Listened

October 17, 2011 § Leave a comment

Facing colossal spiritual deflation,

He huddled in the playground, thinking that

He should have listened when they told him

To stop his slavish preoccupation with numbers.

Still, he hoped he could tease the answer to his dilemma

From the mass of jumbled anonymous notes he kept under his pillow.

His bed sagged under their weight, and they kept him from sleeping well,

But the wildly sumptuous pile of handwritten equations

Could contain the key to defeating his worries.
