143

you mean more to me
than I can ever say
I get tongue tied trying
to spit it out every day
I love you

I don’t know much
about algebra

but it boils down to 143,
1+1 = 2, and
me + you = we
easy as one, two, three
simple as do, re, mi

sometimes I can elaborate
and make an elaborate sign
or spake an elegant rhyme
to describe the vibe
I feel inside when I dive
into how much
I love you

but be it plain
or a decked-out decree
its true
complex or simple
clear complexion
or cracked and pimpled

with a side of salad
or a side of soup
(for real though,
we’d have fries)
I love you
