When I think

I’m thinking you

Like a child

Flummoxed by an

Algebra assignment told

That this goes

With that I

Drift instead wondering

Do we and

Not these belong

Together because as

Teaching taught us

We do not

Yet we do

Do belong together

Then like that

Child forced to

Understand it clicks

A times B

Does equal AB

Me times you

Does equal us

When I think

Of that of

Us I smile
