Fortune cookie crunch

Published:

 

The Gastronome

Intelligence and language;
Pathogenic curses
To obscure;
To conceal
What any ant would know;
His kilobyte of brain
Large enough
To discern
Beeswax from earwax.

From Poems of the New Old West

Ate the evening meal at the Thai place in Rio Rancho when I went down to buy my tickets.  At the end I got a fortune cookie.... had to do a double-take.  The numbers were all, save one, among the fourteen I had on my short list, had debated with myself whether to buy a wheel, or to just scatter them out on a few tickets.... scattered them.... 30 tickets total, plus the post-meal one after I recovered from the experience of seeing my numbers on a fortune cookie.
