Circle and Square

A Proem by Melanie Anne Phillips  

Circle and Square were in love,

for they were the same.

Each had an inside and an outside.

Each lay flat upon the paper.

Each was surrounded by a single line

that connected back to itself,

defining them.

One day someone pointed out

his rough edges and her retiring nature.

And they never felt identical again.
