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
