Poetry: Six and Twenty


And twenty

These numbers have always guided my life

Towards good things

Winding paths and rivulets along the river I could never have foreseen

My first and second loves, born on the 26th of their months

Apartment 2.6

Address is 20-26

Report number 26

The year I turned 26

The year 2016

But perhaps that is the point

In a way

It’s an ineffable plan

And when I go looking

For Good Omens

I go looking for

The number 26
