dead end

photoart & poem – 2018 -Laura Granby

The book has closed
pages by the hundred read
most words understood
the plot thickened
intermittently thinned
scenes manifested
storylines soared
characters drawn and quartered
I the reader entered
listened and witnessed
thrilled, perturbed
despaired, agitated
and finally – dejected?
– relieved?
always a bit dead
at The End

Exploring the voiced dental stop d which in English sounds an abrupt conclusion when placed at the end of words. Although I did not enter NaPoWriMo2018 I am ending the month with the Ladies in Waiting prompt from Elizabeth that includes a choice of concluding words from Final to Over
