NaPoWriMo 2016 Day 16

A poem plus a reader minus distraction divided by two cats equals another poetry prompt! Write a poem in the style of a mathematical equation.

a rainy day
plus a sunny day
equals a barometric pressure shift
and a headache
but when you arrive
it doesn’t matter the weather
you’re always a headache


you plus me
minus the time spent arguing
multiply by our expectations
divide your father’s disapproval
now solve for X
when X is the only spot on the map
we want to be


and forget-me-nots
add some birdsong
and a squirrel
cherry and plumb blossoms
already gone
it all equals Spring
but this Spring
is a month early
and no one wants to solve
this variable
