27. Happenstance

I tossed three coins upon the desk
believing they could read
the futures that the air impressed
the fortunes that we bleed

I trusted in the furls of fate
the thread that does unwind
belief in kismet was the bait
for my impressioned mind

The I Ching told me there was worth
in actions done with grace
for beauty, ritual, love and mirth
will set a steady pace

So trust in music, be afraid
of those who will not dance
The foundations of a life are laid
all else is happenstance
