If it's true that what you need
      or need to learn most shows up 
         at the exact point in life 
that you need it, what 
     does it mean when the test
results come back with atypical
         cells, when an out of control
     delivery truck barrels down the road
        and crashes into a car parked
at the end of the drive? No one
    asks for any of it, and yet
            the syrupy light pours over 
a beach littered with the milky blue
    plastic-sac bodies of jellyfish; 
and only one of you, tiptoeing carefully
          around the edges, is fatally stung.
