A number of events

A number of events conspired to prevent me from—
———————no, they didn’t

To an event there is no me

What there is———–is resistant

——————-Spin around—-Look
——————-nonchalant

A gull arcing out
————over the inlet is such
——————————–a long way to go

Two bananas, some apples

The offers——————–come pouring in
