No story ever ends.
There are lees to every story.
Follow the trace.
In the dead of the night,
Amid the noises in the woods,
You’ll see the prince and princess!

They don’t live happily ever after.
They just live to sprinkle the leftover
On an unused potting mix
Of love and lust.
Until new stories start sprouting
From their death dusts.
