I’ve had an alias
and an alibi
and spent some days
in a dungeon of two
make it three—four
pick any damn number

But quantifying ain’t
about everything
unless you rush
to paint blush
the digits

-only-

as some will sum
stanza one
says it all

aren’t they captured
in high relief
our final tally
a trompe l’oeil
the bottom line
an asterisk
that denotes
approximation

  1. I like the language being used it. It’s almost as if the importance of it lies deeply within the language. It reads sort of like an amalgamation of several documents posing as one informative piece. Definitely worth the read.
