Place Value

Place Value
by Leslie Noyes

Numbers on a line:
Finite representation of infinity with
No omega and a debatable alpha.

One truly is the loneliest number.

If whole numbers claim the left side of the decimal, do broken ones occupy the right?

Why are there no oneths?

The asymmetry is worrisome, yet the pleasantly sibilant sound of thousandths compensates.

What’s your favorite number?

Mine is five and three hundred sixty-eight thousandths; although, I’ve never had it printed on a sports jersey.
