Tectonic Shift

Tectonic Shift

She thought, perhaps, the world

might end if she wasn’t perfect–

if she didn’t do as

expected.

She tested her theory

with a straying of the heart.

And, of course, the world did not end.

She wondered if, perhaps, she wasn’t quite

unperfect enough to test the theory,

so

there were further indiscretions,

and

the world was still standing.

Or so it seemed.

She thought, perhaps, the world would end

if she was less than perfect.

And, perhaps, it did.
