"A Close Call"
As Alex Dorsey looks across the yard at Mariangela Diaz, he has no idea that in 99.99999% of the parallel universes that him and Mariangela both exist in, they actually meet at this party and embark on a horribly destructive and lengthy love affair that ruins both of their lives and leaves them bitter, hollow shells of their former selves… creating a legacy of pain and sorrow for generations.
FORTUNATELY, this version of Alex and Mariangela happen to live in the parallel reality where Mariangela picked up smoking at the age of 16 (which only occurs in .00001% of the parallel universes she and Alex exist in), so that when Alex spotted her from across the room, he thought to himself “I don’t like smoking” and then quickly looked away… never to think of her again.
While each of their paths in time always lead them here to this party, in this universe they thankfully do not continue together… both of them never knowing how close they came to lives of pure misery.
"The Long, Dark Bathtime for the Soul"
Sitting in the tub, only a small candle for a light
The flame flickers on the wall, barely holding back the night.
Wanting to take an escape from life’s eternal wrath
Christiane wasn’t sure what to do, so she took a bath.
The wax drips down the sides, hardening as it goes
And Christiane stretches out her limbs, popping bubbles with her toes.
She soaks and dwells, internally yells, at all that has gone wrong
It all feels like it lasts forever, but it isn’t really very long.
The water has cooled, her skin has pruned, and the bubbles dissipated
So Christiane is forced to return to her life earlier than she anticipated
She remembers to remember, that it’s all okay because
None of it really matters, except the stuff that does.
