The Number Line

A fresh new poem by Lynn Stanley

The Number Line

Lynn Stanley


 

Infinite the teacher
says as she looks both
ways: the line of numbers
broken as light and long:
the sun’s gloss, a river,
a blue street she must cross. 
Forever, says the teacher
and the girl thinks and thinks:
before me and after,
past barn beam and rafter,
way up high and down low,
watch the evermore go,
past the river’s cut shore,
swing wide the unlatched door,
into darkness and old
star light. Negatives are
left; positives are right.
