Coincidence - Poem by douglas scotney

A thinker
listening to the radio
will hear a word
as he is thinking it
and think
that coincidence
makes uncanny sense

and see a word
in what has acted out
(a page of words
with a line crossed out
by more than the needed line)
and think
how uncanny is 'violence'.
