So today is 12-12-12. If you remove the second 2 from 2012, you have today’s prompt: 201. Or rearrange the prompt number and you have 012. What does it all mean? I don’t know. But numbers can be fun. Or misleading. Which can make them useful and dangerous. Like words.
For today’s prompt, write a numbers poem. Your poem can count down to something or focus on a specific number (like maybe “12”). You don’t have to do math–just incorporate numbers in the poem.
Here’s my attempt at a numbers poem:
I wake up with “One” by U2 stuck in my head,
turn over on my pillow three times before
getting in the shower for five minutes. Sick
of Wednesdays, I drink 7 ounces of coffee
mixed with an eighth of whiskey. By nine,
I’m headed to the office though I only plan
to stay there until around ten.
