Adrift! HOW THINGS SNEAK UP ON US.
UP A LADDER WHOSE EACH RUNG
IS WROUGHT WITH YEARS AND YEARNING AND TEARS,
SO THAT WHICH YOU POINTED TO AND SAID
(IN A VOICE THAT BROOKED NO OPPOSITION)
"THAT NEEDS TO GO IN THE BIN!"
was, in fact, the wisdom of all ages.
The secret of the universe.
The nature of all being.
