I am a Number

Words are subjective
Numbers are objective
That was hyperbolic
Both are symbolic
Or even parabolic
Never fully right
Never fully wrong

Like a sinusoidal wave
With truth as the (pr)axis
Searching out the words
Nothing’s quite sufficient
Numbers more efficient
A letter is a number
The number is the structure
The ceiling is the scripture
The eternal cosmic pivot
The holy single digit
The mystery in the mystery
The history in the history
The empty space between
The bridge of faith unseen
Breathe to find the mean

Where the telescope
Meets the microscope
Becomes the kaleidoscope
That’s where you’ll find me
With the letters and the numbers
Trying to remember
Before the last slumber
Always optimistic;
Always the cynic;
Always the mystic;
aesthetical,
polemical,
alchemical,
In the respective.
The collective perspective:
reflexive
defective
I-nceptive
S-usceptive
deceptive
reflective

In a word: I am a number.
