The Numbers Man

The Numbers Man
has calculator eyes
counting, of course, the little things
the perfect additions after the subtractions
Golden Rectangles
and worshipping Pythagoras

The Numbers Man
has a dividing mouth
that is fluent in fractions
and absolute value
a painted-on facade
is green, and over the sarcasm
but it is still there
negative always

The Numbers Man
has an algebraic soul
every skin cell a challenge
to decipher
and I look in the mirror
and see that I equal him
the sum of my parts
is his solution
and sometimes I wished
the Numbers Man
never multiplied.
