Poetry Friday: Numbers

We are loving our several-times-a-week dips into Poetry 180. Today’s selection (#8 in the series) was especially fun.

Numbers
by Mary Cornish

I like the generosity of numbers.
The way, for example,
they are willing to count
anything or anyone:
two pickles, one door to the room,
eight dancers dressed as swans…

Do read the rest. It goes to wonderful places.

    I started sending these to my son at college, but I forgot! Thanks for the reminder. I think the young Physics major (!) should really like “Numbers.”
