  • Spinners' Hands

    How delicate
    the scale tilts balanced,
    how temperamental
    are these tides,
    and round
    the yet uncharted corner,
    find that fortune
    waits and hides.

    For chance
    is a frivolous companion,
    immune to reason,
    hostile to dreams,
    quick to turn antagonistic,
    and rend the future
    by its seams.

    For how
    amidst a naive slumber,
    do we, in hubris,
    craft our plans,
    soon to find
    our dreams upended,
    by the sleight
    of spinners' hands.
