Wandawoowoo Feeling Lucky By Kenneth Pobo

While walking past
Abe’s Bar and Grille
a fifty dollar bill
blows right up to my boots.
I’m not always

lucky.  My grandmother said
that life isn’t fair
or unfair.  Water,
it flows away,

You reach for a leaf on a current
which pulls you down,
carries you off.

Kenneth Pobo has a new book forthcoming from Blue Light Press called Bend of Quiet.  His work has appeared in: Orbis, Mudfish, Hawaii Review, New Welsh Review, and elsewhere.
