the learning curve

I've set aside
most science, most math,
most biology.
it's somewhere in me,
in the attic
of my brain.
I studied so hard to put
it there.
to give it room,
to memorize
such things as the bones
of a body,
the periodic table,
the planets
in order of distance
from the sun.
how many nights did I sit
with pencil
and paper
and solve equations?
what good is that now?
those answers, with
me sitting here
on this bench
wondering if you really
love me.
