Crossed by Felicity

Carte blanche idiot
coincidence with heart
stuck with an intention to
not be as ordinary
as Mother and Dad said
he would always be.

Twice apprenticed
once with a machinist
then after that didn’t work out
as a typesetter at the paper
where he wrote headlines feeling
he was a part of the news.

Felicity crossed his crooked path
After seven struggles comes the eighth
All the planets lined up with all his blind dates
Mouth of brine teeth of gnash
Come down to right now
great simplicity.

Married with a kid
time slows to a single minute
with visions of childhood
do people ever get free from
their nuts and bolts their headlines?
Only time will tell.

What did he do?
How did he do it?
In a goat’s bleat and a dog’s meow
life half gone still on the prowl
for the uncommon the exceptional
for life above life.

Simple minded
man working at getting by
got out of the daily grind
what he did not know he
needed what he was without
trying too hard.

Felicity crossed his crooked path
After seven struggles comes the eighth
All the planets lined up with all his blind dates
Mouth of brine teeth of gnash
Come down to right now
great simplicity.
