The chapters of my novel life
slide first base into existence.
I don’t know they are ending
until the next chapter starts.
Some thoughts or feelings may carry over, but there is at least one ending particle. Determining which it is, whether it is obvious or not, is very important to do.
When and if it pops up in the new chapter, we have a better handle on it- we can react accordenly, more confidently and at a quicker pace.
