Destinée Finds Destiny Appealing

Destinée finds destiny appealing
Even as she knows that she is free.
Success then brings her to the granite ceiling
Telling her what is, or not, to be.
Immensities return her quiet keening,
Nor more nor less than what she knows is true:
Eventually, she must surrender meaning,
Exactly as it was her fate to do.
