Reverse Fraction

By Reverse Fraction, A Poem by Seb Reilly


triple thirds
graph lines gone
but now three-dimensional
good growth essential
active sculpture
curdling perceptivity.

It can be rebuilt
tomorrow will be better
I promise.


Levelling out
double doses
graph lines moving
but still two-dimensional
good growth sequential
distant vulture
circling productivity.

It shall be rebuilt
together we are stronger
you promise.


On the up
single figures
graph lines static
but not one-dimensional
good growth potential
cultish culture
hurtling positivity.

It will be rebuilt
today will go faster
we promise.
