    Coming to That
    BY DOROTHEA TANNING


    “If it comes to that,” he said, “there’ll be no
    preventing it.”
    He uttered it as I listened. Had I got it right,
    hearing him?
    “If it comes to that,” is what he said, and,
    as if talking
    to himself, went on about how there’d be no
    preventing it.
    He came to that conclusion, saying it in a
    slow way of
    coming to that, whatever that was it might
    come to before
    not being prevented—and as if such a thing
    were for him
    the unthinkable, and would prevail, if it
    came to that.

    And while listening more closely now to
    what he said,
    I realized if no one paid him heed, it would
    be as if he
    hadn’t said it—if it came to that—and would
    then not be
    prevented from falling to forces known to
    care little for
    what he said, even if they heard it, their
    being wily
    and forceful enough to make sure it would
    come to that.
