For the Millennium
Jennifer told me about
unsolvable math problems–
people work for years to find solutions
only to realize the mathematicians before them were right:
there aren’t any.
(It doesn’t stop them from trying, though.)
We all think that we can be the exception
be the one for whom
the piece of the universe fall together
the one to create something simple
from the realm of the impossible
to have it be so
because we believe.
