My Trilogy

for Evangeline, my swansong of a third

 

After your sister’s hard-won exposition at my unwed nineteen,

washed down with a ten-year recovery

ending with your brother, a merciless Spartan spinning

endless into genius wreckage of his own doing and undoing,

 

I chased them with you,

that happy ending with a name so good

that, when the credits rolled, they rolled.
