Once, I dreamt we ran out of lucky numbers to clasp onto and fortune cookies to snap. So we crossed fingers, crossed each other's heartstrings and stars, banned bad spirits with cheap spirits, with middle names, middle fingers, with the memories we learnt to love, whilst blessing ourselves with our defects, and laboriously watching out for cracks in sidewalks.
We called it a miracle every time we didn't fall through.
You were my winning racehorse, forever the prized gamble, the writer's ache for pressed typewriter keys and bullet black ink on paper, the published return for insomnia incited poetry.
You were luck and I still feel like a broken mirror.
