The Inadequacy Of Flowers - Poem by douglas scotney

Perhaps because I don't know why,
the need arose for fate
to be given the chance to differ.

I don't know why
I make my bets in words.

Perhaps without uncertainty
no need to bet in anything
let alone in words.

Perhaps,
in the uncertainty
of what words say and cause
I see better chances
for that different fate.
