Triangles

The truth is
I was terrible at geometry
I was not great 
At math
In general
 
There are reasons
But they’re ugly
And involve 
Cruelty
And abuse
And bad parenting
Let’s not go there
 
But geometry 
Is almost
Conceptual
 
Which should be good
For someone like me
 
I prefer to think
It just wasn’t
Explained properly
 
So geometry is still
Such an elusive thing
Something
I can’t quite grasp
 
But triangles
I loved triangles
They made music
Could make music
 
I thought I had
A secure grasp
On triangles
 
Until
 
You
And her
And me
 
But we made
A clangy sound
It was not pretty
 
Sometimes
It was ugly
 
And finally
Silent
 
I’m not fond
Of triangles now
 
I wanted to take
My point off to a
Bohemian Street Faire
 
Find some slow dancing
Languorous 
Brown eyed boy
Who would make me
Forget how to breathe
 
You could be
Point A
To her Point B
 
But you said
No one leaves
We love this through
 
I believe in love
 
I don’t know 
If I believe 
 
In triangles
