Poetry: Innocent Ladders

Do you believe in luck?
Good or bad?

Is it talent?

Or fate?

Was it meant to be?

Or one in a million?


Can you discount luck

By learning statistics?

Is that all there really is?

(It’s my least favorite

Part of math, anyway)


Are you superstitious?

It’s the thirteenth, you know…

Did you buy a lottery ticket?

Or do you dodge innocent ladders

That are just trying to help society

Anyway they can?

Isn’t it pragmatic to open an umbrella indoors

Before the rain hits you?


What’s your lucky charm?

Did it make you win that game?


And if you believe in good luck

Doesn’t that admit the existence

Of bad luck?


Is that a trade you’re willing to make?
