  • Could Have
    Dan
    18 May 2004

    Well, fuck you. That's preemptory.
    I knew what would have happened, that's why I did it.
    Could is the strongest of three, better than should, better than would.
    Could is honest. No dodging bullets, no boasting from imaginary circumstances. Acceptance, culpabilty.
    I know what would have happened if I did nothing, so I stepped in. I tried. I failed, but I tried. And, I'll try again.
    So, fuck you. Could is based on actions, not results. Not the badges of valour, but the courage itself.
    I could have won, it could have actually happened.
    And, and next time, it really could.
