– do things run their course, or do I cause them to run that way?

and I still think it
extradordinary
that I did not
fish from the curve of the basin
the garnet earring
moonstone
silver hook.

to access where it dropped
to unscrew
the pipe
took effort
but was not impossible
and there it would have sat
sits
for all I know
awaiting commitment to
intention.
