Chinese Fortune Sticks

1st: You will soon best a rival -- Ooh boy, bring it on!

2nd: An event will soon bring you money -- Yes, on Thursday I'm reading at Hobart & Smith Colleges. These sticks are really accurate.

3rd: You will soon have to choose between 2 friends -- Should have stopped at 2 fortune sticks. I always push my luck, don't I? Ok then, I will remain in Fate's sturdy hands by making my selection via coin toss.


  1. Good luck with the coin toss.

    I wouldn't want to be one of the friends in the balance of 'Fate's sturdy hands'. It's too dicey. Too much like Russian roulette.

    I prefer a touch of freewill over fate any day, however illusory it might seem.

  2. Reb – you say that you haven't written a poem in a very long time and that may be true, and I know that this may be corny, but there is a whole lot of poetry in the blog entries that you submit here. Like this one, and very much, many others.

  3. Thanks, that's very kind of you to say.
