the odd to cooper field badge

it was the autumn of 97
and I agree that elegance
was packages of rice noodles at
Prince Henry's kitchen table,
or dandling of a long braided hairdo
on Princess Elsa's back,
the silver cooper badge gleamed
like the ears of corns at a cornfield,
still, valid,
posting in one enchanted motion
as I exam its silky surface,
my heart bursts,
my hair stands,
black tufts cascading,
flame of unknown force tumbling down,
a broken heart,
a wounded reminder....

a math equation is a problem for all to think about.
why, how, what, where?
