Dividing Together by Adaobi Chiemelu
The cake was holy communion
You picked one piece not fatter than your two fingers
You watched as the next person went on to do same
and put the same in their mouth
You thought of pi
You thought of thinking about pi
The 'pi' in 'pi'ece of cake or the freshly baked pie you hoped to have
It takes you 3.14159 ways to adequately circle your thoughts
on what pi is
Pi is dividing together, fraction by fraction, piece by piece
We all are alphas betting in our infinite numbers
when we pi together in this circle of life
And in the end, it's a piece of cake!
Thank you, Adaobi Chiemelu, for your mathy poem!
