Reliability as a Mathematical Concept in Matters of the Heart

As a defining characteristic
frays the fabric, a negative integer
in the field of love

four late cancels
divided by eight close encounters
establishes an unsatisfactory algorithm
in terms of endearment

I’d never previously thought
reliability was particularly sexy
but rationally, it seems sound
To take a lover who shows up
who keeps his promises
showing care & respect as
better than a 50/50 chance
when considering the math
in matters of the heart
