Very superstitious, wash your face and hands…

Stevie Ray Vaughan

Plinky.com asked me what I’m superstitious about.

Do I cross my arms
from the left
or the right?
Do I throw spilled salt
over a shoulder
just in case?
Do I count five magpies
on my lawn
or a tree?
Or would that be four
or three
I’m not sure…
If I trip on a worm
need I pull
my left ear?
If I follow a tree
need I jump
over lemmings?

No
None of these things
None of them
None

I have no illusion
that forces
metaphysic
impact the course
of this day
today
life

Everything’s random
Luck
in the response
Can I seize
an unexpected
moment
or chance?

I gave up the fallacy
that our actions
dictate events
when our control
is a distant
memory

No
I’ll leave superstition
to the two Stevies
Wonder
Ray Vaughan
You’ll find me
following
the black cat
who’s yet to decide
whether my path
will be crossed
