K4, M1: Knit Four, Make One, by Sandra L. Faulkner
“With two needles and a ball of string,
we learn the art of multiplication”
MAKE TWO With two needles and a ball of string, we learn the art of multiplication 2=>couplets, lovers, dyads, pet rats, not twins like in my preggo horror movie. Two tickets to a concert, a table for 2. Not my favorite number-the rent is past due. II, 2, two ways to write the number, my favorite curvy because you can lie in the bottom, the bowl. The number of bites you need to share, a joint account. Two. The usual number of cake layers, the pieces of toast you get with eggs, the # of eggs in the daily special, my good and bad side, dichotomy, either or (not both/and), one part of a compound sentence. Two sides to the bed, two dimensions, two favorite colors, the number of legs Dad once had, knit in front and back=M1, 2 stitches, what you need to erase a day, not the number after birth, 2 parts water, 2 ounces of bourbon.
