Not Allowed to Choose

Born in a mansion.
Born in a manger.

Grow up in a house.
Grow up in a hovel.

Live a short life.
Live a long life.

Die in a bed.
Die in a battle.

There are many things
we are not allowed to choose.

Melville’s Conundrum

Queequeg stares at black
Bones on the whaling ship. Choice
Can have strange outcomes.
