Else before.  And then.  And then.
And then, this.

What is vague
in what is in vogue.

The thing you think is a thing is not a thing.
Or needn't be.  Or shouldn't be.

We are made to lose,
to know the inevitability of loss.

Confronted with the cost
of the essential lies.

The past has a scent, a smell,
which what comes next lacks.

The magician alone in his dressing room,
reaching again and again into his hat.
