Saving Marvel’s Marriage1
by Nick Horton
Promiscuously, Those other lovers may, Like lines oblique, In every angle meet, Only to drift apart forever. But we, In parallel, Beyond this local defeat, Will, at the edge of space & time, Finally be together.
- a response to “The Definition of Love”, a poem by Andrew Marvel. He, sadly, lived without knowing of non-Euclidian geometries, and love without the parallel postulate. ↩
