{gratitude: 11.12}

Ending’s such a final word –
“Ding-dong, the witch is dead!”
‘THE END’ is richly calligraphed –
The last thing that is read.
(The last thing that is written, no —
but for this writer’s sake
Let’s make-believe that we out-weigh
The editorial stake.)

Now to see if I can just let this sit a day or two without picking at it or determining that it’s all wrong or that I need to take something back. Why are endings always the worst? I want everyone to live happily ever after, of course, but that’s never reality, is it?

Well, here’s to happy for now. Happy weekend.
