How fast can the heart pump enough
blood to keep me from fainting
beside you? I guess it’s faster
than how I am attempting to solve.
I never knew its mechanics will apply.
Take this artery, this aorta, for example,
and how the blood cannot touch its wall.
How come I see it pumping, moving my shirt?
We repeat the same numbers and variables,
etching them in a piece of paper. We repeat
until it drains out our ink and blood.
You said you want to become a cardiologist.
Whatever the problem was,
it was mine in the first place.
