And then the vagaries of fate and a non-anthropocentric cosmos esnured that I would be left behind on a moonless earth with a scarred face, while a little grey cat traversed the stars in my place. The tides would never be the same, and neither would my hide.

And then?

On the fifth day, they drank, pointed and laughed. On the seventh day, it was coconuts and orange socks. The sixth day called in sick.

And then?

My heart with pleasure fills, but still refuses to dance with the daffodils.

And then?

All the king's horses lost their right shoes, and all the king's men got very drunk. And the house upon the rock was firm.

And then?

There were three blind mice, three little pigs and three days before the deadly lullaby was sung to the child. Ask Chuck, he knows.

He read his Robert Frost and she, her Emily Dickenson, and entire collections of delightful poetry remained unwritten.
