Friday the 13th

fright night
moon hiding behind clouds
friday the 13th

fear of friday the 13th
you’ve got to be kidding

friday the 13th
superstitious claptrap
or snare for cynics

touch wood

  1. Ha! I love this one Gabrielle … thank goodness I don’t live with a scary black cat, mine is a lovely shade of golden brown … so I should be safe right? πŸ˜‰

  2. I’m not worried at all…(stated as he tosses salt over his shoulder)…it’s just foolish superstitious..(said with his fingers crossed)…but really enjoyed your poem..(said in all honesty).

  3. I didn’t walk under any ladders at all yesterday and when I saw that black cat that lives down the road I walked the other way. I also carried some salt to throw over my shoulder in case I encountered anything resembling bad luck (not that I’m superstitious or anything…)

    I rally love this poem, Gabe. It is so witty and clever. Is that the real name for the phobia? Whoever named it needs some help or maybe they’ve been cursed to speak in an indecipherable manner since that run in with the witch on Friday the 13th. You just never know, do you? *cue spooky pipe organ music now*

  4. Friday the 13th works it’s way around the planet. Is just settling into night now here and only a few black cat hours until the 14th, nice rounded-out, even number, that’s twice a lucky seven! But you Australians have already made that passage, under the ladder and swept up the broken mirror pieces into the dust bin, and wood knocked safe already.
