Maybe there will be no end



Everything is settled. There is a specific way to do each new thing.
There is even an agreed upon way to break the rules.

Maybe there will be no end, no flash, no blast,

no final show

This is your project and you must finish it

you tell yourself, you keep telling yourself

again and again

all the while knowing that it matters little

whether you finish it or not

(no one will notice, no one will care)

nonetheless you press on

this is my project, you say

this little square of irrelevance

it means something to me

damn them all

this is mine

For Sooth, sez I. ’Twas as must be, at a guess. Reputed otherwise, but that’s reputation for you.

Thought just now you might enjoy a gem of a piece I collected from my favorite site for my own post, at the bottom of the page, Comment by OO (etc.)
It’s been a long time since I asked you to read my stuff, and I will not now.
But if you found anything pleasing I would myself be pleased.
All hail.
