Today's poem is by Clint Margrave

The Math Mortician
       

Instead of bodies, he sees numbers,
readies them up on timeís table,
dresses them in brackets,

uses algorithms over aspirate
to extract each variable,
hypothesizes infinity is but an empty set,

and life an interval between two ends,
whose value isnít absolute,
when deathís the only constant.
