Poem twenty-one

I love this number

twenty one

it shows my strength

transposed it is my birth month in numbers

my son and I share these numbers because God said so.

This number is my good luck charm

it is my confirmation number

it is the number that reassures me that I have witnessed a birth and must carry on after its death

this number

is the one that grew me into a woman as my son was growing his wings

the elimination and the process have no specific order in which they carry out

this number

repeats when I step in my apartment

201 is that number or the address where I lay my head 18012

I find an immediate comfort in twenty one

a comfort that I want to wrap up in and go to sleep

an immediate response to an action

this number is the day I gave birth

in the eighth month

of two thousand ten.

This number

twenty one

is my foundation

of my family.

I craft people poems. I laugh out-loud. I love all things. Everything is about order. My movements are chess. Everything to me calculates. I just look like this.
