eleven-eleven-eleven-eleven

eleven-eleven-eleven-eleven
by Azly Rahman

11-11-11-11
It was 11 in the morning,
on the 11th. day
on the 11th. month
on the eleventh year
... of 2000
numerologist we have become as human beings
fascinated by the seemingly mystical nature of
numbers
when we are now, in this age of numeral-literacy
where computational philosophy governs our everyday reality
we are numbers
numbers
binary
of zeros and ones
getting excited
when there are anomalies
as in today's much awaited little joy of cognitive excitability
11-11-11-11
today we are an anomaly
for a minute
we are not numbers
souls who believe in numerology
cogito ergo sum
i think therefore i exist
i doubt if i am existing
on this day
