2=1

2=1

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


2=1

 

intrinsic geometry

of algebraic intentions,

 

i love your angles

90 degrees smitten

we make perfect parallel lines

and when our lips finally meet

there will be signs and co-signs

of an obtuse emergence of passionate logarithms 

that will lead us into infinity's imaginary number

only worrying about one equation's truth

 

2=1

You make maths sound so interesting Jacob. I thought I wasn't any good at it, but maybe I was underestimating myself. Two can become one in matters of the heart. Great read.

and that's TRUE MATH! how unique this piece is, and yes in love there is symmetrical science the scene of making love can be a glorious painting and a perfect geometric shape too, and these words just the proof about it.

And 1=0....the circle is completed- perfect equation of balance and different angles permit us to be free to be ourselves as true balance in love overcomes all🌹

clever my friend. Looking back, why did I have to take algebra 2 anyways in high school? How did those two hour session in a hot classroom, looking out the window help with any major motives for metaphor? This is beautiful/..dana

A very clear image of something lovely. Mathematics being a clever representation of something of higher knowledge, greater understanding. Thank you for sharing . A great poem with your unique signature.

YO! I hated math . . . especially the higher forms. However, I get this. Wish my old algebra teacher had put it like this up on the blackboard! I might have gotten a passing grade. Yeah, it's said all reality can be worked out with mathematical equations. Can't you just see that guy with the "beautiful mind" writing this on the library window?! Great poem J. I also enjoyed reading the various reviews!!
