UNUSUAL GOOD-LUCK CHARM ...

AMULET ... talisman ...

good LUCK charm ... JUJU ...

Strange how a

SIMPLE inert object

can carry so much

STRENGTH and POWER

in one's MIND ...

How its beauty REVEALS itself

by isolation ...

Years ago,

as I was coming out of my car

UNDER Jacques-Cartier BRIDGE in Montréal,

this LARGE rusted steel BOLT

detached itself from the structure

and LANDED on the hood,

leaving an inch-deep CRATER imprint ...

I have ALWAYS wondered

what would have been the IMPACT

if this quarter-pound MISSILE had bullseyed

the top of my HEAD instead ...

Once in a while

I STOP right in the middle of what I am doing,

hold this TREASURE

in my closed hand

and SMILE ...
