Some Kind of Luck

There are days when I wonder if I shouldn’t have stayed in bed, days when
the rice catches on the bottom of the pot, I trip over a shoelace, cut my
finger while slicing onions … sound familiar?

SOME KIND OF LUCK

I never knew
until my luck turned                      IMG_9587..4.23.13 graffitti
that I wore it
in rainbow colours
lasar beaming
tarmac-gleaming
eye-blinking

a luck that opened
to green pastures
reached down
through tumbling water
and lifted onto rock

but the smiling lady
turned – and now rapids
run swift
rocks bruise
cars crash
and           in doubt
I question
even the clock
