A Very Pleasing Outcome

From the collection published in 2015, Autumn Opens a Door.

A Very Pleasing Outcome

There wasn’t the slightest sign
of public opinion, despite its efficient ways,
ever doing anything to change her mind.
The wreck of her reputation, something chosen that moment
when she had to choose
and not by accident,
turned out to be good fortune.
It pulled her to safety.
She had never wanted to cause disruption
But
she did and but good.
She liked it
fine.
