For today’s prompt, write a lucky number poem. Some people have lucky numbers, some don’t. Wherever you fall on the lucky number spectrum, you can still write a poem about the phenomenon of lucky numbers and/or luck in general.
I’m lucky you wore that dress
and every other guy in the restaurant
watched you glide to my table.
I’m lucky you were only half an hour late,
your babysitter didn’t bail
and your boss was distracted.
I’m lucky you actually showed
on this our third try
for a first date.
I’m lucky you mentioned chemtrails
and Jesus before ordering dessert
then joked about global warming and ice cream.
I’m lucky it only took one dinner
to discover what I wasn’t missing.
