Numbers

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.
