So, how does the Triangle
relate to the Circle?
Euclid and a radius prove points
that radiate from the center, a circle,
a method to navigate space.
Would this seem more real if we pulled
ribbons from agreed upon place.
perhaps the Maypole?
Preoccupied with tangents and triangles,
it is hard to visualize chords,
a concordance, to be in accord.
