They Come in Threes

Day 361 prompt: Three

people say
bad things
come in threes
as if that is
a comfort

so if I drop
my phone
in the toilet
I know it’s just
the beginning

and then
my dog dies
I know
one more
calamity awaits

at last
I lose my job
and have no leads
or money
or hope

but at least
I know
the worst
has come
and gone

I drop
my new phone
in the
fish tank

then what?
