Equations

A life’s work rendered in coarse white chalk;
A monumental undertaking
Of intricate construction, wrought on

A wide plane of slate hung from a wall.
Endless labyrinths navigated–
Thought surging through the darkened future

For the surface and promised daylight.
The numbers boggle me, leave me dry;
My math-happy friend swims their ocean
