Mobius Strip, Bottle of Klien,
Only support one surface at a time.
Hollow cylinder, Torus too,
Have surfaces in numbers of two.
What causes confusion in thought
Is the deep contemplation of a Knot.
How can infinite surfaces spring
From such a simple piece of string?
Looking from this obtuse angle,
I would hate to define a Tangle.
