what is it about numbers

August 26, 2016

a baby born in my immediate

family

everyone asks

how much did he weigh

how long is he

there were more pressing matters

yet this ideology

about numbers haunts me at times

like a lab value that may be arbitrary

or an oxygen reading that may be momentary

weights, heights

that are decided or not

by others

I ask a lot of questions

these days

western medicine and otherwise

is not set in stone

like we are human beings

individual and intricate

there are patterns made

to fit some

not all

numbers are just that

a phone number

a code

a password

have we been reduced

to numbers

not me babies

 

peace
