the lucky spoon

 

 

slowly watch the spider

come down from the

ceiling

 

remember why you gave

up drinking gin in your

twenties

 

put on some coltrane and

look for the lucky spoon

 

enjoy your failure more

than they deem reasonable

 

explain that the cosmos

didn’t know what to do

with you and this planet

was your punishment

 

laugh at the threats of

violence or arrest

 

you have way too many

scars for them to think

this is your first rodeo

 

but there can’t be a

revolution without

some blood being

soaked into the soil

 

 

 

 

aquarius

 

 

my horoscope today

said creativity will

serve me better than

logic

 

that’s the easiest

way to sum up all

my years on this

 

planet
