Twenty Eight (Poetry)

Twenty eight. Eighty two.

They’re just numbers

Age is just a number

Reverse them

Add, subtract them

Multiply and divide

Basic arithmetic

Decimal places

Fractions and powers

Coefficients and pi

Universal constants

Counting forwards

And backwards too

Mathematical equations

Time is a constant

It can’t be math’d

Add years here

Take away there

Is it only a state

Of mind or being

Or something more
