FINDING

He was no longer sure
quite where he found it,
or whether it was talisman
or just an amulet, but
he didn’t believe the distinction
really mattered at all.
He carried it with him
everywhere he went,
was sure to put it
ins his pocket each day.
Many said it did nothing
for him, brought him
no better luck, no change
in his circumstances,
but he was quick
to point out how much
worse things might have been
had he never found it.

One thought on “FINDING

  1. I once had a multiply handicapped student who kept asking me to get one for him. I finally gave him a metallic, meteorite-looking stone and he was happy and appreciative. 🙂
