a clever look
i was thrown for a moment, as fate (at least where i'm from) is often garbed as male
i wonder if it was in the cards that they be smashed, kissed then reprimanded ...

i've seen fate garbed as both. i think klimpt garbed fate as a she. i certainly see her as a giggling and devlish she. maybe it depends upon what we are garbed as.

the kiss is the thanking bettalpha. is that confusing?

a little

I'd put "when I get there" after line 9.

Could there be another word for devilishness?  I'd offer evil, but that might be abit strong.

and "thanks" is better grammar.

Cheers.

thanks
 — unknown

when i get there at line 9 would ruin a symmetry that i like.
thanks is nice but thanked is proper tense.
