Complex Geometry

© Matthew Word Bain

Euclidean planes crop up in the valley
surrounded by surfaces fully fractal in nature
which do you suppose will last longer?
which requires more maintenance?
is most supportive of life?

one is complex, the other merely complicated
one embraces a burgeoning diversity
the other exists to maintain
a lonely monoculture
kept safe inside four walls
under the roof it requires to survive

in this wager on longevity
how are you placing your bet?
what are you seeking to sustain?
