The Numen of Numbers -- Star Black

Thirteen elevators rise in a normal nightmare.
There are thirteen hoofprints on the nearest stair.

Thirteen stains mark each embankment.
A sergeant trains troops for thirteen engagements.

A woman hides her eyes in thirteen evasions.
Every continent's comprised of thirteen nations.

When love is unspoken there are thirteen reasons.
When the dead reassemble there are thirteen conventions.

A tsunami warns the shore in thirteen waves.
A char-a-banc on tour reaches thirteen caves.

A sunset contains thirteen astonishments.
Shattered on the outlands are thirteen monuments.

Thirteen blisters meet one solar stare,
so why is there a blind spot, a blind spot everywhere?
