There Is A Number” — by AleXander Hirka — [mathematics by Gerd Altman/Pixabay]

There Is A Number

Even Though We Don’t Know It

There is a number . . .

Of people met over the years
— of people intentionally ignored
— of people passed unnoticed every day.

Of heartbeats
— of footsteps
— of teardrops
— of laughs.
Of yawns and sighs of resignation.
