Cuddling you,

is like a mathematical equation.

All elbows and angles,

spoonerisms and square brackets.

Just as a

parent he sis-

te-math-ically

square routes,

and exponentially

asterisks the mattress,

to become algebra

beyond my comprehension;

yet squared and integrated,

your obtuse, hypotenuse,

is surely a sine

that we can tessellate,

calculate and co-ordinate,

affirmative action,

and solve

an alternative angle,

between curves.

The geometry of

cardinal em-braces,

satisfies the

conjugated,

conjugal,

bed.

and yeah.. cuddles are the best indeed π

said:I agree – once you have negotiated the elbows and angles!!

I’m glad you enjoyed it π

your obtuse, hypotenuse,

is surely a sine

that we can tessellate,

calculate and co-ordinate,

said:As I will at you place. BTW, I stunk at algebra in school. I passed with a “c-” because my teacher was also the football coach!

said:C- that is a good pass! I loved maths, but we always had excellent teachers. I used to think of them as a puzzle or a mystery to solve. I was the Miss Marple of the Maths world π

said:A great story, and attitude! Kids should pay attention to that example!

Enjoy your weekend,
