Why should the date and day of the week dictate
whether or not our day will be full of poor luck?
So many talismans – the broken mirror, the ladder,
the crossing black cat, the rabbit’s foot we rub for luck.
Being in the right place at the right time – or
the wrong place at the wrong time –makes your luck.
Not getting on the Titanic or Buddy Holly’s plane;
Being the one millionth customer – that is sure luck.
Meeting you the way I did – in the dorm lounge
that September day – I couldn’t have asked for more luck.
