To Think

I really don’t know how to begin
(It’s hard to say where
the ‘how’ starts and the ‘where’ ends)
I really don’t where to begin

Despite popular opinion
Most tales have no head, no tail,
They do, of course, have a plot

But in a sea of
Bewildering circumstance
And ungainly afterthought,
The waves push it along

They too have no beginning, no end,
Just insurmountable strength,
So much so the plot oft’n mutates,
And sometimes, altogether, disintegrates

Perhaps, this is but a reflection,
Merely a victim of refraction,
But if I may, and if you will,
Just let your gaze

And ride wave upon wave
