O Fortuna

O Fortuna

When you first set out
seeking your 
fortune 

they said it would  
be tough to 
make a living

as an oracle.

Yet you insisted!
working your medium
divining currency 
from every 

given moment
free! to spend your 
time 
bringing to life 

the ineffable Unique 
radically 
unfettered to collateral;
wholly inequitable! 
save 
a rich personal bias 
toward nothing 
but 
the truth 

spanning all that time 
from now to when 
your work 

Survives! 
as present passed 
to bestow a better Chance  

thanks to this day 

you make your living 
BRAVE
