   I tried to synthesize Cabalistic number systems into a number poem.  The number poems were popular in the 1970's.  Neil Mills, check it out.

I don't know anything about number poems, but these numbers look very nice-- very respectable. What number would you like me to rate this poem?

You can rate it however you feel.  If you are interested http://www.ubu.co m/sound/konkrete.html has some examples of number poems.  The purpose is the sound of the numbers.  Thank you for the comment.

I'll rate it
eight
because in Cantonese
"8" is the luckiest of lucky numbers.

I like 6's, just not 3 of 'em in a row.  I also think 9's are cool cuz when ya turn them upside down they're 6's and vice-versa.  Other than that, I think I'm outNUMBERED!  Thanks for that link.  I wanna go ck it out.

By the way starr, your sexual innuendo was not lost on me.
