Not Ready

November 1st, 2003

when it crashes down around you
it's not when you expected it
because it wouldn't have been a crash
without the surprise element
without the panic and open mouth
it would have been just a bit unfortunate
so the true disaster tiptoes up
and then laughs and slams your face in it
you can look for purpose or reason
but don't invest too much
there is no universal fairness
and optimism is just a crutch
