Duodecimally, Thinking

is a good number
think of the apostles
before Jesus
brought them bad luck
(thirteen adds up)
and the Romans
divided up the year
into twelve months
was it the moon?
minding their menses?
The only bad thing
this year
are 12,000 kilometres
from me
in Pari, Finland
Better luck
next year
when you're thirteen
(geepaha loves you.)
