tough luck

black kitten on mossy cement stairs

who believes 13
is less lucky than 20
i’ve seen some teens
who had the means
but now they haven’t plenty

who believes
umbrellas shouldn’t
open up inside
it’s how you get the smell out
it’s how you get it dried

who believes that black cats
are anything but grand
perhaps the guy
who’s bleeding from the
tooth holes in his hand.
