Day 20 – Dividing Fractions

The thing I like
best to teach
is to divide
fractions.

You can’t do it.

You have to change a piece
to its opposite,
make it the reverse
of what it is,
to do what needs
to be done.
You’ve got to multiply,
which almost seems
to defeat the purpose.
And yet from it
you can get
what you need.

I quite like to teach
how to do things
that can’t be done.
