If it Were Not Contingent

(Trish Jean)

If it were not subject to chance
It would have happened
Surety
If it were subject to chance
It would have happened anyway
The unlooked for fortuity

If its existence did not depend on falling
Would I merely have swayed?
Quest
If it were not conditional
Would it have existed anyway?
A hinging on and pivoting to

If the body were someone else’s
I could not be a part of it
Forming
If we were not curiouser and curiouser
Time complete me
