You Know Examples Possess You

Any story becomes myth
When it passes some threshold,
Not yet quantifiable,

Beyond which enough people
Within a community
Defined by churning contact,
However diffuse,

Are familiar with the tale
To make it shared currency.
Past that saturation point,
The story acquires a life.

Each such myth’s a kind
Of being, a growing god,
A living thought, a monster.
