Calculations: A Love Poem
Gary Fincke
The billionth digit1 of pi is 9, 
 The last month without a full moon, 
 February, 1865 --
 This morning I am making a list 
 Of the last lines of parables(比喻,预言) 
 About the work of numbers, about 
 Calculations, marking the speed 
 With which blood travels, as if three feet 
 Per second were like the blessings 
 On the late workers in a vineyard 
 Or a son just home from living with swine. 
Someone continues the division 
 That computes2 the decimals of pi --
 He is telling a story, numerals 
 Spilling out toward infinity, 
 The counting a language, a life 
 Beyond this one, as difficult 
 To believe as the number of hours 
 We've slept together, darkness returning 
 And vanishing, the moments, nightly, 
 Between your breaths, the hesitations 
 In your deep sleep; my own held breath, 
 Listening, and then, temporarily 
 Relieved, turning toward the window, 
 Reciting the autonomic(自治的) lesson 
 Of your lungs that swell3 and shrink 
 At last, in rhythm, their vital 
 Capacity, in liters, 3.1.
