Countless

The end
was not an instant
but a time
of countless instances
that tried
but could not
become whole.

The Blackboard

He began writing the novel
on a blackboard
each page was printed
with a stick of chalk
a page completed
then erased
to make room
for the next
as the story unfolded
one page at a time
as the past
disappeared
without edits
leaving but
imperfect
memories.
