Number 9

I’m not a nine person, but okay
I will play along for nine innings.
Who can forget the Brady Bunch grid
with all of the family members,
plus Alice, looking up, down, across
at each other—never behind them.
There’s where they might have found Madame Ruth,
her gold-capped tooth sparkling as she sold
bottles of Love Potion Number Nine.
