Poem: Friday the 13th

Deny Friday 13

It’s power, snub your nose, stamp foot,

Make it crash aloft.


Prove you’re bigger, Great.

Untrampled by numbers 

On a monthly page.


Refute each classic

Myth looming larger than real life.

Gods can’t get it right.


You retain the truth

You, not they, make glory days

Like this by yourself.


Call it magic or will,

Ratchet up destiny, capture



— Charlene James
