this (the common choice)

stand
in one place
for long enough
and the world
might pass by
before you

the whole universe
of possible things
can come to pass

all that is wished

all
that is
dreaded

every possible choice

for good
or for ill
paraded as an option

and so

one choice
among the many

every choice
is one
among so very many . . .

~

it is lockdown
here
again

overnight curfew

no travel
beyond three miles
from home

just one
member of the family
allowed to shop

non-essentials
shut down

of all the conceivable
choices
and
every possible
outcome

this

we chose
this
