Higher Mathematics                                           

            She didn’t need a Ph.D. in higher math
            To show that finite space
            Could bound infinity
            I didn’t need the leverage of a degree
            To prove that with a place to stand
            The heavens could be stirred
            The only education we required –
            And, in fact, preferred –
            Was an embrace
