Casting Nines

Casting Nines

A Poem by Carissa H.
"

--Fan Poem-- I was casting nines; I cast out you; So I'll cast out seven; And then me two --(That last bit is intentional)

"

If I was casting nines

And I cast out you
I’d cast out seven
And then me two
 
If we were a triangle
You’d be Leg B
I’d be Leg A
So the hypotenuse is you and me
 
If I was X
And you were Y
Then our love would be
x(y)2 = ∏
 
You’re my common denominator
My other digit and radius
The 1o who makes 360o
Dividing by zero would destroy us
 
x(y)2 / 0 = ………
 
But since you’ve been gone
Since you left me
Our right triangle
Became my isosceles
 
I was casting nines
I cast out you
So I’ll cast out seven
And then me two.

Author's Note

Carissa H.
The point of casting nines in math is to get rid of all the numbers that add up to nine in a problem. So the "And then me two" part is intentional.

This is a fan poem for a FictionPress story, The Blue Rose by CaveDwellers. FP doesn't support most of those math characters, so I put it up here instead. ^^

I LIKE THE FLOW AND RHYTHM OF THIS VERSE...AND THE CREATIVE DESIGN USING MATH IN A CLEVER WAY TO PUT THIS INTO WORDS...SEEMS LIKE A LYRICAL VERSE BY THE WAY IT COMES OUT AS ONE READS THE LINES OF THIS ONE...
