Absolute Geometry

A straight line can be drawn joining any two points;
a circle can be
drawn - the segment as radius, one endpoint as center.

A litany, circling

like mantra beads,
keeps her anger fierce.

The two are A and B:
a failed marriage
aged to end points.

They intersect.
Without a sound

she thinks of square
words: weed, yew, cement;
oval: room, caress, foxglove;

rectangular: vodka, twilight,
hemlock; round: thornapple,
calabar, laburnum.
