…the number of things people think
are impossible or by accident
when they’re clearly by design,
…the number of things we choose
to misinterpret, to ignore,
to mistake for something else,
…the things we don’t want to know.
Those very things
are what matters to us in the end.
They didn’t cease to exist
just because we didn’t want them to.
We are moderated,
judged, sentenced, executed
by the many, many things.
