Who Said What

A gifted storyteller,
Once, in an interview,
Suggested her family,

Which had a remarkably
Complex, unremarkably
Contingent history, was

A source of deep bemusement.
It was the contingency,
Oddly, she found bemusing,

As if behavioral swerves
Didn’t often redirect
Eventual waves downstream.

Being a storyteller,
She felt storytelling might
Be the best tool in the end,

At least her interviewer
Felt that was the takeaway.
Bemusement’s storytelling.
