337x365 - Ben

had careers in the fabric industry
could do complex math quickly in his head

statesman of the class
when he cleared his throat
people turned

he'd settle disputes by standing
spreading his hands, templing them
declaring "different people, different ideas"

Still reading, still overawed: this is easily, no offence to any others, going to be the best 365, at least the one with the most supple armature.
