Cassandra Dickinson: Infinite?

Infinite? For Leo   Sooner or later, we are all reduced to this— A single number teetering on the edge of a couplet, always reminded of the power of two, forever questioning the value of one. Searching through sums like lovers infinitely trying to find a whole in the fraction.   We could have joined forces both you and I strengthening our parts as a pair, but in my heart’s quest for convergence, I lost yours to divergence. So now, You’ll stay “you” while I’ll remain “I” incalculable and yearning for a number, more rational than π.               Cassandra Dickinson
