Fate

Fate: the intersection of Time and Space.
Monday, June 12th
Me on foot and
a black Honda.

[the longer version]

I laugh and say I’m risk adverse
I look both ways on one-way streets
until yesterday, when I forgot.
Too late, I saw a backwards, fast-moving car.
I jumped aside, but not enough
x-rays said nothing broken.

I’ve learned my lesson
Fate can strike from all
directions
