All of the best things
Have an inevitability to them.
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.
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
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
