Ninety degrees (revised) (a poem)

Still not completely satisfied with this, but I think I have improved it somewhat…

a corner
a quarter
a sideways glance


a hot summer afternoon
a scorcher
a day for shorts instead of pants

the distance of the equator from each pole

8 short of a boy band
8.6 shy of normal
15 Kevin Bacons
30 people under interrogation
