Numerals

(I wrote and illustrated a twee poem at lunch today. Click on the picture to make it bigger :-D)

nine is a gypsy
begging for alms
eight is a snowman,
limbless and blank

seven is a sickle
poised to strike
six is a friend
waving goodbye

five is an apple
halved at the core
four is a smoker
leaning on a wall

three is a mouth
asking for a kiss
two is a guy
who had too much
to drink

one is a man

lonely

and wan

numerals
