[not for the mathematically challenged]

Let the time I take to write this be X.

Numbers fading in and out of sight
Blurring before my very eyes
Then - vanishing.
Patchy correction fluid
Hiding mistakes and large red crosses
A whirl of indices
Huh, was that zero as well?
Maybe I ought to factorise it.
Or perhaps - expansion?
This makes zero sense at all
As I notice the side of my eraser
It's a parabola -
No, an ellipse.
Last thought before I get
Painfully confused and drift off
In a cloud of fairytale dreams

X= 10 minutes.
