"And Eight Is The Number"

To wait patiently
For the opening up
Of a door-

Even though
You may have already
Been through it
Seven times before-

Which would make eight...

And eight is the number
That if toppled onto its side
The symbol for infinity:

God's love...

Without abandonment:

Unlike the skill-
The expertise-

Yet do not call the police...

Because you can count on it,
That it's all just so much arithmetic
With those various forms of government:

Your name and number-

You are a number...

Very peculiar:

The smell of money-

Strange scent!

Yet it has to be used to pay your bills-

Pay your rent- ha!
