Most coincidents are not
miraculous, but way more
common than we think -
it's the shiver
of noticing being
central in a sequence
of events
that makes so much
seem wild and rare -
because what if it wasn't?
Astonishment's nothing
without your consent.

  • ". . . as I have said often enough, I write for myself in multiplicate,
    a not unfamiliar phenomenon on the horizon of shimmering deserts."
