LUCK BEING GOOD MUCH LIKE NUTRITION

LUCK BEING GOOD MUCH LIKE NUTRITION

Luck’s in this time
and always available to us

Like a surfer, we can surf

Or not even
have to do that
‘cuz surfing implies
skillfulness

And we certainly don’t want
to limit luck to the skillful

So like a walker, we can walk,
we can walk right through
whatever door gets us there
to luck, luck being good,
of course, much like
nutrition

Doesn’t even have to be a door
we can walk through, it can be
an archway o’ air

It can be an archway o’ air
just sitting right here

Or if we’re a fish, it can be
an archway o’ water

Or if we’re a tunneling animal
or insect, it can be an archway o’ dirt,
the dirt in which we live,
the tunnel that is
our abode

So when we’re sitting here
our luck sits here, too

And part of it is out there
collecting goodness for us
with its arms
out there

And sitting
here
with us, too

Even just
enjoying
breathing

Being cultivated

And when we’re moving about,
our luck moves about with us and

We can take some of our ever-growing
luck–our ever-growing good luck–
and put gobs of it on places
and people so it
sticks to them,
takes care of them,
goo of goodness
