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.
I like the domesticity of addition—
add two cups of milk and stir—
the sense of plenty: six plums
on the ground, three more
falling from the tree.
And multiplication’s school
of fish times fish,
whose silver bodies breed
beneath the shadow
of a boat.
Even subtraction is never loss,
just addition somewhere else:
five sparrows take away two,
the two in someone else’s
There’s an amplitude to long division,
as it opens Chinese take-out
box by paper box,
inside every folded cookie
a new fortune.
And I never fail to be surprised
by the gift of an odd remainder,
footloose at the end:
forty-seven divided by eleven equals four,
with three remaining.
Three boys beyond their mothers’ call,
two Italians off to the sea,
one sock that isn’t anywhere you look. 11 months ago

I planned to do this indefinitely,but decided to start with the goal to reach a certain number that’s big enough to copy into a book/journal to share with the people in my life, and still will probably share them somewhere online. This way, there’s some sort of end point that can make me feel like I accomplished something. Here’s my first one, which I love and has helped me again and again:
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”
