Ode to Numbers
by Annette Meyer

Numbers are real, but they can be irrational; numbers are natural, but they can be negative.
Arabic or Roman, numbers depict quantities, combinations, permutations, probabilities.
They are used to add, subtract, multiply, and divide;
To measure pain, space, volume, and time.

Numbers exist with exponents, logarithms, and reciprocals.
Numbers represent discounts, register markups, form indexes, or determine value.
Numbers solve problems, express rhythm, identify locations, and find people.

Numbers are special, as for birthdays,
Promising, as for favorable odds,
Sexy, as in good figures.

Numbers deserve an ode!

About the Author

Ameyer has had brush or pen in hand since early childhood. At that time, impressions of immigrants arriving in New York City encouraged a tempera—watercolor painting—of the event against a skyscraper landscape and the flag of the United States of America. The painting won the Wanamaker medal in a citywide competition for preschool children.

The full gamut from solo exhibitions at a 57th Street art gallery in New York City to original works deposited in the Special Collections of the Hunter College Library of the City University of New York, to slides and biographical materials in the artists file at the Museum of Modern Art, or MOMA, in New York City are accomplishments of the artist. More than five hundred original drawings, paintings, and prints are owned by private individuals and private and public institutions, including the Graduate Center of the City University of New York, the College of New Jersey, and the Pines of Davidson, North Carolina.
