Just Do the Math
when it comes to love,
there is simplicity.
in the past, i have made it so complicated
when really it’s arithmetic
like 1 times 3
rather than the square route of infinity.
it’s just that i’ve been taught
that things of worth are hard to earn,
so when love seem too easy,
i make the cruise-controlled vehicle turn
with mean words
and inconsiderate actions
and forget my simple math
and skip ahead to long division and fractions.
