Bio-Thermal Geometry

Mama, mama ... I got a triangular problem And I need you to give me the square deal truth Straight honest for real, lying foolproof — it’s a rectangle of a mess I’m trapezoid in a love box, never thought it would get to be this obtuse Having parallel realities is splitting my precious time Got me pillow turning cycloidal up and down, going out of my equilateral mind My scalene thoughts is moving into acute stress zones I’m at a congruent loss, what in the trig is going on! Mama, mama ... in matters of the heart, you’re smarter than me So I’m asking you would you help me please This problem’s circumference size has gotten too radius wide It’s gonna swallow me elliptic whole, body and soul The X and Y factors are: my woman and her best friend Just a few days ago, we were all sitting so close — facing each other, so perpendicular I took a wrong hexagon segment sight vector approach, when my middling eyes made a slight right angle turn Had an unintended plane innocent peek at her best friend's curvature bosom blossoming It raised the room temperature ninety degrees, and the melting regal rhombus walls of civility came tumbling down From the skin ratio of my woman’s frown, I could feel the isosceles burn Oh, why ... oh why didn't my vertex eyes make a fast oblique left turn Such a tricky Euclidean dilemma, dummy me didn’t quickly learn I feel like I Archimedes screwed up, didn’t study octagon situational etiquette hard enough Mama, mama ... enlighten me, help me solve this bio-thermal geometric equation Would you Einstein me with some Solomon persuasion This parallelogram thing is troubling me so; it’s very vexing, problematic emotional ... I believe only someone polygonal wise as you might know, to help me get out of this love maze circle My girlfriend, she’s one gorgeous looking woman, and her best friend, she’s beautiful as a triple ten When we all get back together again, how should I break the ice ... put their dual spherical distrust to an end Oh, Mama, mama ... you’re so concentric wise, thanks for the hyperbolic advice So you say, start our soiree with a pure grape juice toast: Tell my special lady, she’s the most beautiful host Gaze lovingly only at my girlfriend, and say: Marilyn, here’s looking at you Then without turning my eyes, say to her best friend: Miss Monroe, here’s looking at you too The ending to this poem was inspired by the scintillating poem, "Glow Worm" by the talented poet Jannie Breedt

Wow! You really took me back to school with this one. I had to call on my Einstein (my husband) to help me out with the geometrical expressions, lol. You were boxed in for sure. But mamma always knows best. Interesting metaphors and imagery. Very playful but still serious. You are a man of principle. It's important to keep the eyes in check if you want to remain faithful. Nice lesson. Thank you. I enjoyed it.

My dood man Freddie, You are a scholar and a gentleman. I am moved that you drew inspiration from my poem Glow Worm. I am, humbled by that,especially so because this outstanding piece is so cleverly woven and littered with grammar that leaves me looking like a worm indeed. I wished you lived next door, ( theres a neighbour thats closer than a brother- Proverbs) I follow in your footsteps and always receive your love. I wonder where you live and if you are warm. Thank you for this precious gift at a time in my life where I so much need it. (You should have photographed those boobs and leave us poets to do a further geometric equation for posterity)

What a perpendicular conundrum of an isosceles triangle you have written...within perplexing parallel realities and consciousness...due to the unsustainable circumscribed circle and Euclidean plane...bi-dimensional space is static lol...great write my friend...god bless...^WW^

Science and art ride together in this love poem--quite original--like the way you ended it!
