My Sudoku Life

And I walk
across numerical figments
speaking hyperbole dialect to their imaginations.

Numb, blocky gaps
whisper invitation to secret club.

Enticing my stature
to belong
to become exponent’s side-kick.

So they can welcome me with open arms.

Coating my digits with inoperable tumors
double-knotted in hot pink laced bow
and baby-breath scent.

They even left a Walmart Rollback smiley face sticker
with crack residue on right cheek
and a comic-style bubble caption, “welcome home puppet”.

Yes!

This is exactly how Mother 1 told me it would be.

Kinda like marriage,
but less detail-oriented.

But, I could never fit in.

For I am neither positive
nor negative
about their (cult) ural ways.

Timing would always be off.

An arm from the clock that suffered a stroke at Midnight…

They’d never understand,
how they’d alter this unevenly, odd numerical figment.

For they’ll just calculate,
deduce,
my sum with rusty protractor.

This Zero, into a fraction...

    =D Thank you for that, Juliet! The theme behind this was a request from an old friend of mine. I had a field day when she suggested the topic of the request. =)

    Being a sudoku addict in the past I couldn't help but click on this... lol. I'm not sure if I read this right, but I felt a very strong urge to not conform to the ways your family wants you to be. Trying to puzzle you out when the puzzle is unsolvable... I get that vibe anyway. It's a very elaborate piece to say the least.. fitting for your personality! I once wrote a long poem about how my life connected with numbers called Counting Down... it was a challenge, but that's what makes writing fun.

    The theme of this poem was actually a "request" piece by an old friend of mine a few years ago. I love Sudoku too. So, I figured, why not? You're on the right track with the direction I was going in. Though, it wasn't about my family trying to change me or anything. :) Many thanks to you coming by again!!! :)
