Despite Magnificent Technique

Before we could relate the rest
of the story, it was over
because a new one had begun
and was telling itself
even as it, too, was about to sink
below its own beginning.

We who knew of the story
(were perhaps in the story)
tried to correct and auto-
correct the story’s insistence
that it go where it wanted,
not where we hoped.
