It’s just another story
Another incident
Like the dog in the night
Curious, often dull
Yet full of palpable promise
Extremes of passion
Channelled or loose
A fire expunged in a flash of light
Or sputtering on
In the embers of our personal charnel house
And not to know what came before
Nor what will come again
Lends a certain poignancy
For a short, short while
