Don’t Trust

All of the best things

Have an inevitability to them.

 

In retrospect,

That was how it had to end.

The logic of thing…

Defined as it is…

From the biggest picture.

 

A dinner, with those accompaniments

Could only ever have been capped off by that surprising tart.

 

That story!

I never would have seen that coming…

But that is the only climax such an oncoming ever could have merited.

 

There is just enough of

you,

In me

God.

 

Just enough that after the fact

I say “Of course!  That is what it had to be!”

And sometimes I laugh at just how fitting it all is.

 

Don’t trust the people

Who think they see it coming, though.

There never was going to be,

Quite that much of you

In us.
