superstition (and a poem about said subject)

I saw a black cat
cross the path
but not the one
in front of me
a side street
still in my view,
but I wonder
I pause,
will my luck
fare just the same

notes… I would love to say I am …so… above the odd superstition, but I would be lying, I try to be logical about it but sometimes that is just a scratch you have to itch, perhaps going to lane 12 instead of 13 for EZ-Pass… guilty ! even though I am not a triskaidekaphobiac (truly one of the greatest words in the english vernacular), so this is really a true story in poem form, just me driving home the other night and out of my right eye I spied a black cat (or did I? hmmm?), and somehow this little troll of suspicion of apprehension… of superstition whispered in my ear…

Music… going with a classic here (and sort of obvious!)

Stevie Ray Vaughn – Superstition

Some Housekeeping notes… I updated my Collections & Series page, linking to my Essays and such, so if you think my poems suck (that’s cool) you can skip to what you like (I am damn accommodating). Also I am in full on Game of Thrones mode on my media page, I tend to write copiously when I am passionate about things.  Plus I will review movies/shows you probably never heard of.  I have diverse tastes to say the least.  So shameless plug #2 (media page!!!).  and for the hell of it… more SRV, damn he made that guitar sing, I hope to pull up a chair at his table and have a drink with him when this is all done.
