In This World Ruled By Numbers

0 is a rolling phenomenon.

1 is important.

2 is what it takes to tango.

3 is complicated.

4 is not me nor my number.

5 is high.

6 is vowel away from carnal all the way.

7 is the old lucky;

8 is the new fave.

9 is to out live cats.

10 is the total of man’s left and right;

But how could he want more
than his fingers can count?

For a number by itself,
it doesn’t
have a meaning.
For only
when he adds or subtracts,
multiplies or divides,
its meaning
Comes into light.

Perhaps he realizes
it’s not too bad
to cringe to his toes
and continue the count.
