No Good with Numbers

when twenty becomes old
and three becomes five as my parents age
years in six like their son in twenty-one did
i wonder if three five and six will be enough
to make their uncle something less:
minus one (still inutero) times two
will make me up to twenty-five
when the ticks of seventy-two are enough
to make me want the twenty-one i had
for point.eight
