signs

if it was meant to be
a sign,
he ignored it.

pushed through –
heedless
of warning or wisdom

signs are for the simple, he said.
superstitious,
seeking exceptions and excuses.

do what must be done
damn the signs

as he rolled into
the roundabout
of fact, fiction, and fate

foot off the brake
