Four thousand, one hundred sixty-nine
I emerged from sleep
With the number repeating in my head
4

Sleep-slogged
Over and over
Four

What was it?
Theories welcome:
A dream conversation?
Random neurons?
A budget line,
running through my head all night
Numerology?
Add them together they come to 2-
Energy balance peace connection
Or was it
The number of hours since I have left the house
Surely not
Or was it
Yesterday’s dead
