Something comes up,
a number that isn’t quite right.
Another day, another test.
It’s a trial, in more than one sense.
We are lucky:
good or bad, the news is early
and plans can be changed or remade.
The test is the trial and the trial is the test.
What of others?
Those not on trial,
un-summoned by Dr.Uids
for quarterly readings of the runes?
