five dollars and fifty-eight cents

the choice was mine
and i drew it out
and measured its length and breadth
like hamlet: to be or not
not my existence but
my self
and who that was and wished to be

a small decision like that one
cannot change things -- but
dominos have effects if placed
many drops overflow a bucket

it was enough to know
the possibility exists
i did not need to fulfill it
the choice is made
i will remain me
this me that i have been
for the right reason
