Miscalculation of a Fool


It's a reaction

caused by incorrect fraction.

A division of an unhealthy kind.

A problem she longs to solve

as frustration takes hold.


She tries over and over again-

never getting closer.

She isn't sure if it's the Numerator

or the Denominator

creating the distance.


She pushes forward.

calculating carefully,

as she tries to close the gap.

there has to be a answer;

there has to be a way.


Her determination is building

as her stubbornness feeds the frustration.

She must know the answer

but her calculator is failing her,

as insecurities bubble over.


Finally, she asked the answer.

she should have never asked.

A defeat through a simple miscalculation.

It appears she is the fool,

because this is just simple math.
