(Words & music: A. Latimer)


At a songwriters workshop, we
chose a folded piece of paper
from a guitar case. The task was
to write a song around the word
on the paper and perform it five
nights later at the showcase. My
word was Salt.
Thank you Colleen and Stephen.


I throw salt over my shoulder
Got a rabbit's foot round my neck
I'd try any kind of Voodoo
To get you back, by heck
I'm fussy about mirrors
I do not step on cracks
I can't walk under ladders
I pull kittens out of sacks
These silly superstitions
Are driving me insane
If you come home I will be good
I just can't stand the strain

I don't mess with umbrellas
I always knock on wood
Cross my heart and hope to die
I promise to be good

All my pennies go in wishing wells
I never sit on hats
I won't have shoes on tables
And I can't abide black cats
I give nuns complete attention
Light candles by the score
I'm so involved in magic
I won't be bad no more
I help old ladies crossing streets
I don't give people knives
I never play with matches
Or other fella's wives

I don't mess with umbrellas
I always knock on wood
Cross my heart and hope to die
I promise to be good
