DISPLACED DISASTER
(7/20/13)


to realize

after
the fact

that disease
disablement
dysfunction
detention
or death
could
have been
completely
avoided
with a different
schedule

a different
route

5 seconds
either way

a foot
or two distant
in any direction

would
have sidestepped
a scenario
resulting
in such
a detrimental
outcome

who knows

perhaps
the results
would've been
worse

the alternative
possibilities
can drive
one
insane

maybe
these malevolent
events
source
from the person
or persons
involved
and not
the environment

magnets
of negativity
perhaps
a change
in venue
would not
have mattered

good people
or bad
God
or fate
may have
determined
their destiny
regardless
of time
or place

I do
know now
that each
of my own
personal debacles
was usually
preceded
by an engraved
invitation
