To be more or maybe less,
there is an option
neither to mingle
nor disappear like in nonexistence
stitch count, splat points, pace on a track,
number of cardinals in a winter’s scene
loved by dreamers
there are those who believe
Productivity, ambition, pride
sing their praises
of course, resting on one’s laurels
is a way to the future
Do they matter? Do they lead to happiness?
A digit that moves from a 5 to a 6?
Numbers. As I see it, define.
