The Alternate Ending


                Anything can happen


or nothing but never
at the same time.

Ambiguity may or may not
be important here.

Name a solution somebody
already thought of it

the old "two forevers,"
you go or you go on.

The one where you rise
up to the stars

the one when you fall
drunk down the stairs.
