A triangle is a polygon

Three edges

Three vertices

A, B, C denoted

Scalene, Obtuse, Acute

No matter the internal angle,

The degrees,

You’ve never found that

Of an Equilateral appealing

Unable to relate,

Obtuse seems far more fitting

Difficult to understand

Two sides annoyingly sensitive, impossible

High hopes of overshadowing the smaller

Base of the shape

What the opposing angles

Fail to realize is nothing would be possible

Without the foundation

While the top portion remains

Sharp and ominous

The root exists patiently and quietly

For the value to be found

If I could, I would have

Used a fine tipped pencil

Versus a pen to sketch

If I could, I would erase both angles

To form a linear arrangement

Instead I dispose of the scratch sheet

Some equations are left unsolved

For temporary periods of time,

Regaining composure

The values of A and B discovered

So we start from the beginning

The base

Progressing from one stage to another

Sequential

A singular line

Possesses more meaning than you may think

For instance

Roads that extend for miles

Through the flatlands of Kansas

The Midwest and back

To the heart of the desert

Outstretched limbs

Welcoming and warm

Beaten dirt paths

That eventually led me to you
