181 (1 today)
11 (who?)

i'm tempted to order you from an online catalog;
     biting my nails to the quick
     probing torn flesh in my cheek 'til it bleeds
     reading with eyes devoid of the danger of glazing

"Enjoy a free gift with any product order when you use your Catalog Number!"
  #967411. i trace the pleasant digits with my pointer, hoping it forecasts something new.
  i love the way 9 offers an escape from a whirlwind of neverending chaos
                          6 curls and streaks for the skies
                          7 is hell-bent for freedom
                          4 offers a reprieve from sharp turns and congruent roads,
                                supplemented by scorched corners.

but i don't grieve over the ones i've lost,
clipped from a catalog card like one gone from infinity.

perhaps i shouldn't order , because i --
     can't deal with the weight you're bound to bring into my even life.

after all, infinity minus one is 1 from complete.
