Cards

I know your seven digits
I know your three and five,
I know your blue and purple
I blink from inner eyes.

I am your holy number
though you don’t know it yet;
I am what makes you see in fours
I am what draws your breath.

I am your five and seven
I was your six and one
I am all your numbers
I’ll be there when you’re done.

I will live forever
pounding out the chords,
I cannot count on numbers
I cannot count on Lords.

I am your five and seven
I am your ace of spades,
I am the inner fury
A face gone up in flames.

You are my one and zero
you are my king of hearts
you are my six of diamonds
you sang my wind apart.

I am the master puzzler,
you are the missing piece.
Black nine is on red seven
black vein is on red leaf.
