One metmorphisize fits all

Happily-ever-after

mythology only prefacing
the sequel
continuing the saga
tacking on the index onto
volume one

having read this scene
from life movies
writing, rewriting the books
playing déjà vu-all-over-again
never more than
countless times
here-we-go-again
monotony of changing times
same cast of characters
different roles
haven’t-I-seen-this-show-before?

Exit, stage right
enter stage left
either or, vice versa
prefacing intermission
part one ends…
next!

time to regroup, recalibrate
endings are simply ellipsis
masquerading as comfort
to the ill-at-ease
