In the development of human culture, mathematics began with counting. And so it also begins with each child as she/he grows.
Someone said that a person is wealthy when she has more things than she can count. Another view is that true wealth is having no need to count. Whether or not either is is correct, we can appreciate "My/My/My" by poet Charles Bernstein (begun below and completed at poets.org).
My/My/My by Charles Bernstein
Count these number of things you call mine. This is the distance between
you and enlightenment. —Swami Satchidananda
my fountain pen
. . .
Bernstein's poem continues for more than 400 lines, ending with "my word". The complete poem is found at poets.org.
