than it is in reality.
and I fear that you, too, are
larger-than-life in my head, distorted
by the grimy fingers and slipping strings
of human error.
tenths of a centimeter disappear
into never we didnt catch them quickly enough
but you are a much more gross miscalculation
like measuring pi as 72
the percent error is astronomical
the percent error is hell.
and you will never find, in these measured words
measured, yes, just like circumference and diameter
the true extent of my thoughts
boundless, scratching at the boundaries of
space and time and other limits,
like the distance between your profile and mine
from the opposite sides of a crowded auditorium,
like the invisible line drawn
down the middle of a hallway,
like the fact that whenever I see you
I start thinking about pi, instead.
