Maths fascination

As he had predicted,
my Grandfather shed
his slumped shadow, which
reflected again
and back again;
caught in the triptych of mirrors,
skirted with frothing, peach coloured
lace. 
He shrunk himself,
inch by inch –
a perfect mathematical illusion
repeated neatly forever,
a proven hypothesis.
