20/20, a haiku

Words arrive too late –
Esprit de l’escalier
Escalator wit.

– inspired by DP “Hindsight is 20-20” prompt. L’esprit de l’escalier is a real saying, it’s French, and it’s meant to encapsulate the feeling of knowing exactly what witty, amazing, perfect comeback to say at the exact moment that it’s too late to say it.
