March 14, 3/14, is Pi Day, a day for math lovers and pastry lovers alike to rejoice. This year, we have an extra reason to celebrate: Song & Dread, the new poetry collection by Otoniya J. Okot Bitek, features a sequence of 50 Pi Day poems.
From “Pi Day 21”:
“navels begin to creep upwards
towards the sternum
most people won’t notice
because they’re drawn to the numbers on the screen…
because they’ve left the solid of their bodies
& now they leave no footprints”
Pick up a copy of Song & Dread for a sweet Pi Day treat.
