Rubik’s Cube

Rubik's CubeRubik’s Cube,

You sit there

On my desk,

Taunting me.

Still perfect,

Untouched,

All colors

Together

As they

Were meant

To be.

You want

So badly

For me

To twist,

To turn,

To blemish

Your uniformity.

I know what

You’re thinking,

You devious,

Three dimensional

Sociopath.

You’re certain

That I’m

Not up

To the task

Of returning

You

To your

Perfect state.

What you’re

Implying

Is that

Were I

To Lay

A Hand

On You,

I’d screw

You up

To the

Point where

You’d never be

Your true self

Again.

How dare you,

Rubik’s Cube!

You don’t

Know me.

I am

A puzzle

Much more

Complex

Than you

Could EVER

Hope to be.

Let’s see

You try

To solve me,

Hotshot.

I’m going

To leave you

Untouched

On my desk

To remind

Myself

That the

Pursuit

Of perfection

Isn’t worth

The hassle.

    Seven years of my life studying mathematics turned out to be of absolutely no help in solving the damn rubik’s cube. So much for education!

    Ha! I don’t think I could figure out the cube or your poetic cadence, Austin. Good poem.

  4. I just pull the stickers off…go for it, Austin!

    Ha! I love this!

  7. Love this! You will find this hard to believe…because you know, I’m not the brightest of sparks, but I did complete a rubik’s cube once! I think I was about seven! Perhaps, just a strike of luck?
