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
