these are not my numbers
Are all numbers.
How many hours of sleep I get.
How many hours of sleep I do not get.
What time the leaf blower blew up my day.
What time the air compressor guy took me out of the running for president —
[Hey I could so be president.]
What time The Cougher started coughing.
What time The Cougher stopped coughing.
What time the vamp girls come home.
Everything is numbers.
But they are the numbers of other people.
These are not my numbers.
Soon I will have new numbers.
I wonder what they will be like.
I wonder if they will be mine.
