“Math and Love”

A white wall, a mountain cap,
deep space, a chef’s hat,
Washington’s face, a keyless lock,
no sand, just rock,
a memory, a teardrop,
the open sea, clear blue sky top,
a chin, a heart, a nose,
no beginning no end between skin and an old red rose

Beautiful eyes, fifty cents,
noon or midnight, solar eclipse,
inside the arc, inside the ark,
a conversation, knitting hearts,
wings, shoes, a safety,
earrings, the mind of a lady,
lungs, oars, a passing glance,
no beginning no end, no rose, just hands.
