Swaggering symbol


Musky mathematical problem

written in garish arabesques

Seductive but maddening


It becomes accessible

during romantic dinner

its lines drenched in

question mark-candlelight

and theorem-kisses


Under penciled chandelier

geometry professor

(sexed-up with ideas)

courts it

Molding it

with eraser palms

into docile clay equation

agreeable for cerebral fucking
