Thursday Pi Day

Because it’s PI Day:

pi is perfection with a
loose end

three point one four and so on
without pattern or closure

the precision of a mandala
drawn by a drunk on two martinis

not describing wholeness merely
but thinking odd numbers

spouting them while rambling home
disheveled, irrational, unseemly
as the similar square root of two
at the edge of life
and infinity
