If you imagine everything is a symbol

you look for meaning in everyday things


Songs heard on certain days whisper secret significance

random billboards send messages

intended only for your eyes 


A stranger who drops her keys at your feet

unconsciously wants to meet you; 

was meant to meet you 


but of course,  

none of that is real, despite what our imaginations tell us 

Real life is random 


Some day I will probably see that

but for now all I know is that she's from Rhode Island 

that means she has a plan for me
