Math Class

By Dana Tenn-Miller

A point between figures A and B,
where lips and lines meet and our lives
Where hands clutch and hold one another,
where the domain and range are measured
by length and depth of phone calls;
and kisses are delicately placed on our x
and y axes.
And as we intersect and make our way
through one another, we build infinitely many
more points of which extrapolate our
distance apart.
And once we’ve passed through each other and
look back, we reflect on what we once were;
A point between figures A and B.
