the problem with chloe

she says
‘i fear the wrong that i might do
the unintended evil i might work’

he says
‘for every angel that is created
a demon must be dealt with’

she says
‘i want to be a good person
creating many things of lasting beauty’

he says
‘the only thing that endures
is the instant that beauty strikes’

she says
‘is it ok for me to take this path?’

he says
‘there is a terrible beauty in the way fire burns
in the way a knife cuts
in the way storms build over the oceans
and the real question in any tragedy
is whether the actors had any real choice in the play
if you take this path
or if you do not
you will still be you
and though there is a bitter sadness in this
it is also your greatest triumph’

he pauses for a moment
then says
it is right and proper
that you seek you destiny
for it shall find you
whatever you chose’
