October 31 [Book of October]

October 31

The end is artificial. We always knew
And put it there to make the shadow

Of what follows seem smaller

*

In the end’s private library
Past volumes beyond count

Each with only the last leaf
Tucked between dusty boards

The end finds a bookmark

*

The end is a bridge
We have crossed before

From the other side
So long has passed all

That’s the same is the bridge
