The eternal struggle of left brain vs right brain
Poetic Tension

Math, a vestal virgin,
serves the temple of science
with steadfast purity.

Words walk the streets of discourse,
their demeanor shifts and twists
with every John’s desire.

Truth, a wriggling eel,
eludes the grasp
of competing norms.

Poetry is diametrically composed,
it lives between the lines
of faithless certainty.
