One metmorphisize fits all


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
monotony of changing times
same cast of characters
different roles

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

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