Parabola

Parabola

A parabola is elegant and functional.
The axis of symmetry
divides us into equal parts.

Whatever you do to one side
you must do to the other side.

Mirrored. U-shaped. You.
The equation. The curves.
Everything you are,

encompassed on this plane,
like playing cards.

I am the table
upon which you calculate.
I am reduction to simplest parts.
A curve. Lines that touch.
I am primed.

You. Axis. Curves.
Touching.
