Zahrad - RIGHT ANGLE

While everyone
horizontal
and me vertical –
whomever I met
At once we formed a right angle

I told them
They can trust the right angle –
they can believe
That wherever it is – in whatever shape
ever truthful
It is a straight ninety degrees

In comparison – I asked them – can you
Without careful measurement
Without detailed assessment
acute or not
Offer an angle to your beloved
and in certitude
State its degree?

They said I was right –
then they lay down
horizontal and
went back to sleep
