The Golden Mean, the Rule of Three,
a Fibonacci Sequence of events
led your mouth to mine where slide ruled.
And when Binet’s recurrence occurred,
I held you tight against me when you gasped
my name as prayer sliding from your tongue.
I lost my faith in numbers then; fell from finite
into more than one and spilled inside you.

Bio: Nettie Kestler is living a comfortable life while her synapses misfire. She enjoys reading erotica and when she wants to do something else she writes her own, twisting her characters into unexpected shapes. Besides torturing innocent words, she could also be found in her garden deadheading flowers, or in the house repainting ceilings or upholstering walls. Her husband smiles and kisses the top of her head when her fingers are tapping at a keyboard. He and the dog are momentarily safe from one of her projects.
