On the eleventh

of the eleventh


someone looked at the calendar

and shrugged.


“It’s just a date, mate!”

said a passing monk,

“It doesn’t mean anything

in the scheme of things.”

and he passed on.


Many years later,

that statement

would have been found

to be true.


For numbers

and dates

don’t relate to fates;

as your fait accompli

of life

has long been decided.
