The Number Zero

by Douglas Polk

Zero the place holder,
Like a coat laid on a seat in the theater,
 to keep others from sitting there,
Or a step dad, or older brother trying to replace a dad,
The place more important than the number,
just as the job of the coat more important than what kind of coat,
or step dad, or older brother.
