Time numbers
Date numbers
Social Security
Credit card
pin numbers
numbers, numbers

never have
I ever been
number,

life is numbered,

cornered in,
like a coffin

and I suppose
you’ve been strong

While I’ve been poor
poor porcelain
all along

    I absolutely love this. The syntax you use, especially in the second and final stanzas (if you would call them those), is so enchanting. It’s simple but so poignant.
