'Numb' Eclipse - Poem by Douglas Scotney

Scholars of language figure
that something to do with 'number' coming in from Rome
and meaning 'one' and 'some'
pushed 'numb' meaning 'cold-hearted' out;

something to do with 'number' suggesting with
and 'numb' without
gave 'numb' as 'coldness' less clout.
