Pi, or: Pie

My 1st ‘cadae’

My Papa's
book
rests on my shelf.

Sigh.

I am very proud
of his incredible brilliance,
which touched
thousands around the world.

Still, he's not a book.

I'd rather
have Papa back than
a volume of probability 
riddles that never interested 
me before his sudden death.

  1. A good match of subject and form. We will all die–it’s nice I think to have something tangible that carries the spirit beyond death. But it does not in any way replace life. (K)

  2. Beautiful and relatable. I love the way you write about your dad. I don’t know why I can’t seem to write about my mom. But reading about your feelings for your dad helps me. xoxo

  3. I just ordered this book. Sounds like it is right up my alley as I already have “The Black Swan” Nassim Nicholas Taleb, “Coincidences, Chaos, and All That Math Jazz” Burger and Starbird, “Freakonomics” Levitt and Dubner, and numerous others.
