Sitting behind the good-looking girl

in geometry class, he paid little heed
to Pythagoras, Euclid -- those old guys,
instead concentrating
on passing notes to her;
she wondered about
the curly-haired boy


writing such beautiful words;
they married a few years after class,
decagons, parallelograms 
absent from wedding vows
she kept the notes, she said,
except for the incriminating ones
