24. Numbers: Write a poem or journal entry about numbers that have special meaning to you.

I don’t know. I don’t like numbers, and I don’t think they’ve ever liked me. There’s a malevolence to numbers, a sort of hostile, exclusionary attitude I’ve always felt about them. Like they’re the popular clique at high school. I know more about them than I feel like I should, but that doesn’t mean I’ll ever be in the know, ya  know? There are dates that have meaning to me, but the numbers associated with them don’t have the resonance or magic that I’ve heard other people refer to. I don’t feel a power in numbers. That has always been closed off to me.
