Just when you think that you’ve figured it out
the numbers change again.
My brain leaks integers as I watch in the interval
and the numbers change as I’ve said,
the loneliness of a lifetime
I alter the cruncher
punch in an alternate number
and watch as my eyes start to spin
which is not so easy on a stable platform
as a human
being born about a century ago.
It’s an ocean and it always roars
and doors too because it’s always
I went through my first and the second and
through each door to another, through one more
and another and each door became one more
the one with a sign on it
‘go through it’
and I went through it and found it
was the first door I had gone through
what’s left but
and they’ll always be there
it is good to know
that numbers care
which numbers count the most though?
something else I have to know
or just premature
