This is my studio for exploring my work. Consider these drafts.

I can’t stop living by the numbers

minutes, miles, bites, strides
I’m a moving target I can’t pin down.

ounces, drops, halves, quarters
The color’s draining from my dreams.

milligrams, minutes, digits, texts
My fingers tapping the secret code.

breaths, reps, words, steps
I can’t stop living by the numbers.
