 Why have we lost count

of the bodies wondering
outside, heading smiling
towards the loud lights
on the sky. why do we begin
by finger-counting the dead
when there are never enough
fingers to count them all
never enough memory
to remember the rules
of addition and multiplication
of the dead. numerical
coincidences are always
life, always numbers echoed
on the screen 1 2 3 4 5 6 7
this little finger was from Nice
this little finger was from Texas
this little finger was from
is now
are now
fireworks on the sky it seems
scarves in France
are nice hanging on a loop
around the neck –
not nice on the ground on the street
in the street and red
why is the microphone asking
the number the equation
why is it asking for a word
instead of a silence
why is it asking anything at all
why is not asking why
