The Reminder

The temptation of watching
The unfolding too closely
Too long is to see story,

The ultimate addiction.
When the happening
Turns to narrative

In the mind, turn away.
Quit watching. Watch something else.
Salvation breaks the story

By discovering boredom.
Narrative is never done.
There’s always another one,

As with everything
Unfolding and vanishing.
But narrative promises

An end, a reward
For unbroken attention.
The danger in the garden

Was never knowing
What might happen next
But needing to know,

Needing to get to the end.
