Math Is Like That Too

.
Okay, poets, we get it: things are like other things!
………………….                                  —A. Raza, via Mike Ginn


(4+2) is just like 6
and keeping that in mind
81’s like the square of 9
and in case you think these
are 
poetry tricks,
√36 is too like 6

(in this, poetry’s like
arithmetic).

In fact, when quantities and things align
like is like an equal sign
and, what’s more,
(4×4) is 16’s metafour
