If One Was Two & Six Was Thirty-Three

Serial number shaved off faith—
faith a lime green parrot shivering naked
in every pet store in every municipality—
faith that wants a second chance knowing
that since the dawn faith has suckled
the wilted teats of DNA—hence,
second chances are a longshot—still,
better than swiping a number from
Santoni's deli & waiting in line like all
the other existentialists for tuna salad
& Maryland crab cakes.
