A dozen nothing (a poem)

I saw the phrase in a Facebook post…

I have trouble counting
because one bleeds into the next

That means I can’t distinguish them by weight
because I can’t just pick one out
to put on the scale

Or by size
because I can’t see nothing
let alone a dozen nothing

For all I know
they fill up the entirety of space

This, of course, makes them impossible to round up
because there’s no air in space
and, well, I like breathing

Plus I’m not an astronaut
