Consider the end

What if I’m right and you are
Not paying attention but
Buttering toast that isn’t at all just
Warm bread cause you can’t
Believe anything ends
In your world

What if I’m right about the end
And the bread gets cold
And I’m gone

Too late to believe after the end The ending poem of the year, we write a poem about endings. Any style. This is free style. Just fun food for thought.

Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year.

    Solemn, stirring, and philosophical. Well-penned!

  2. So liked the image of the toast butterer distractedly waving his knife over empty air – and then where it goes – a dare? a domestic dispute? a spiritual journey? All of these things. Marvellous.

  3. Nice job with the prompt, the use of “end”. Now I have to go butter my toast!

    Everything ends, this is a poem that might have continued ad infinitum … that good. Cheers and Happy Holidays.

  7. I wonder sometimes too… but doing well in the present is the best way to trust that the end will be good no matter what.
