decimal points

it was the moment i understood the beauty of maths,
when he told me that between every number lies infinity.

and if you don’t want to get from 2 to 3,
he said,
just add another number after the decimal point
until infinity
because there are always more numbers
and they can’t ever be used up.

i’d like today to be like that.
adding another second now,
and then one more,
and again,
keeping away forever
the hour we can’t bear to come.
