zero in

I begin each day
as a negative number.
I zero in.

One is a win.
One is whole.
One is real.

Even a fraction is a plus.

I divide with dignity.
No eleven or seventeen parts, no forty-thirds.
Clean fourths.
Sustainable sixths.

Suitable to formulas,
to products, and results.

If despite all effort
I am not positive,
then I owe the universe
a temporary debt.

I balance my book.
I pay with interest.
I am not a hole in the world.

reconciled after 32 years
rough Lunts like us
