The Ledger

Submitted by Dr. Mark Weissman

I am a counter
not certified
not diplomed but I count
all things
I count them and place it in my
ledger
light speed and stargaze at
ultimate infinities in the most sparce
expanding to the null
I count them and place it in my
ledger
streams of defied purity
subterranean fugues and hallowed
specters
I count them and place it in my
ledger
parisian autumns and serenades in
silent gesture
staccatos at an adjacent edge
I count them and place it in my
ledger
I can not weigh the words
I can not meter the thoughts or
logic
no problem
I count the synapses
I count them and place it in my
ledger
I woe weary now as of late
the papers are thin and seem
vacuous
so I count them and place it in my
ledger
I am a counter
