Butterfly Karma [Today's News Poem, March 30, 2011]
Every time you call your luck your karma,
Somewhere a yogi renounces his teachings
And snips off his beard.

And curse your adulthood.

Can't be extended to cover our destinies.
We still overlap
As do shamrocks and leprechauns,
Dogs and yellow spots on lawns—
Today, tomorrow, yesterday:
A meadow in spring.
